KYB AGX because they're adjustable stiffness wise and all you gotta do is swap the stock ones for the new ones!

I'm getting a set of KYB AGX's soon. I can't wait!

get Koni's. Koni can make shortened shocks that are suitable for your ride height. KYB AGX, Tokico, etc. are made for stock height. sometimes the manufacturer will say it cannot be used for a specific height (usually 1.5 inches)..and the hotchkis drop is more than that overall, so you shocks will still blow. Koni's cost more, but if you want the best for your car, then get them. the shortened Koni's will most likely last more than twice as long as any other aftermarket shock, so if you think about it, paying the greater amount for the Koni's is equivalent or maybe less than the cost of two sets of new shocks. just my .02 cents.
