KYB AGX
If i were to get the Hotchkis springs, with the rear camber links, to adjust for negative camber, would it be smart to get the KYB AGX, or any other shocks/struts, or could my stock ones hold up??

And would the hotckis drop springs, cause negative camber in the front tires, and how would i corect that if it did??

The rear KYBs would die quicker than the front using Hotchkis springs, and won't be covered under KYB's warranty. The Hotchkis spring won't alter camber up front because of the way the suspension is designed.

It's an iffy ??? as to weather or not you are gonna need the rear camber links. You can always have the springs put on then have it aligned...then if it's still out you can put the links on. But, if you are gonna pay to have springs put on you might as well put shocks on too. Performance springs with stock shocks seems like a waste???

The only struts that will work with the Hotchkis rear springs are custom Konis. All other struts out there (TRD, KYB, Tokico, Koni Yellow) are made for stock height down to 1.5" max. It's definitely a good idea to get struts with the Hotchkis springs, though, since they're very stiff, and without the proper damping, they'll be bouncy as well.

I've heard 3F/4R is the best setting for the KYBs. If you want a softer ride, 2F/3R is good.
