KYB Gas Shocks

How much of a drop can these handle? Both the KYB GR2 and KYB AGX. If I were to use Hotchkis lowering springs (1 3/8" in the front and 1 7/8" in the rear) would it be okay?

Thanks in advance

1.5". Stated in their warranty card. Any lower and their warranty is void, and you'll reduce the struts' lifespan.

your options are eibach/TRD (1.25" drop), or teins s-tech (1.5" drop)or h-tec (i think it's called-1"-.8" drop)

Here's a list of all the compatible springs:

Tein H-Tech (.9")
Eibach Pro Kit (1.2")
TRD (1.25")
H&R (1.3")
Tein S-Tech (1.4")
C-One (1.4"; most likely rebadged Tein S-Tech)

i've got mine on a set of Tanabe Df210s (2" drop), sure they're not gonna live long, but i'd rather have my car look good first thumbsup. and they're not all that expensive either, but if you're not into paying out a couple hundred in maintaining your car each year (aside from tires and brakes) then go with something that's gonna sit up a little higher.
