Which Shocks???

I don't do a whole bunch of road racing, but I would like to upgrade the shocks to some adjustable shocks. I've seen quite a few people with Tokicko's and Koni's, what would be a good buy? I've also heard of many people using Bilstein's, but i don't believe that they are adjustable. Thanks for any input.

I just went to shox.com and they were very good. Prices for the Tokicos I want are $100 less that anywhere else I've found. And for $80 more, they'll throw in some lowering springs. Just go there, fill out a quote request, and they'll send you the info. Then you can order. They are the cheapest.

I picked up a set of Bilsteins last year at shockwarehouse.com. They work great. Adjustables just seem to be another thing to mess with, and for street driving, I didn't think I'd ever bother with making adjustments anyway. Love the Bilsteins...a world of difference. Now if you make it out to the track on a relatively frequent basis, the adjustables would be more suited.

When I replace mine probably next year I like the looks of Elelbrock IAS shocks and struts. Just my $.02.
