A stiff suspension
I just ordered the Skunk2 Coil overs for my GTS, will the ride be stiffer when i combine this with the KYB AGX shocks?

i saw the review about the skunk2 and theres 2 who said its a little bouncy since it can go 3 inch drop. Im just wodering if the KYB shocks will make a difference.

thanks for the help dudes!

yeah, the KYB's should even things out...the dampning on them is adjustable, so you can make it as stiff as you want if you need to compensate for the bounciness on the skunk 2's

The ride will be very stiff using the Skunk2s. You'll probably need to set the struts to 3 or 4 to control them, otherwise you'll be bouncing everywhere. tongue If you care about the life and warranty of the AGXs, you won't lower the car past 1.5". Otherwise you'll be replacing struts every year or so.
