I dont have them so I dunno but you might want to see if you have to get an alignment each time you adjust them.

i have the kyb agx. the front is easy to adjust you can see there is a dial on the shocks (in my profile) and it comes with a key to turn the settings. for the back you have to take out all the trunk plastics etc...

Right but with the non-adjustable ones your stuck with the one setting. With the agx, you can try it and if it doesnt feel right change it. Even if its just for a one time thing it will suit your style.

Go w/ a KYB AGX setup. Its adjustable; you can change it til you are comfortable. Its not super expensive... You could go with Koni Yellows, but, by the time you purchase those, you would have spent enough money to get coilovers like Tein basics, etc... I just purchased KYB AGX for $360 on ebay, including the tax. Why your at it, make sure you get some lowering springs. I suggest Tein S-Tech springs. It will drop you 1.4". Any drop over 1.5" takes you out of warranty and will put much more wear on your shocks and create a shorter lifespan. Hope this helps!

I have GR2's w/some tein s. springs. The ride quality is great. And the shocks arent too expensive.
