    Which shocks for progress springs?

    I recently bought some new (well, new to me) Progress springs for my SC2, before I install them, I want to buy some new shocks to go with them. I was told the springs would drop the car around 2". Does any one with aftermarket springs know what shocks will be compatible with my springs? I don't want stiff shocks as this will be my daily driver. My price range is around $400. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

    There are no performance shocks for this chassis. KYB GR2 is what a lot of people use, but I think any quality replacement brand will work. KYBs are often available as a buy 3 get 1 deal on Tire Rack or Rock Auto.

    Well, that simplifies things. Thanks ProDarwin, I'll take a look at those KYB shocks.

    The KYB brand seems to be the way to go then, they aren't too expensive either. Has anyone tried the KYB strut mounts, are they worth the money?

    just be careful how you position the spring cushion or it will make groan rubber sounds
