Stock replacement at best, and that's a stretch. They're better than nothing but near the bottom end as far as control and longevity goes.

I have a chance to trade some extra stuff I have for some suspension I need to replace on my worn out fairmont. What I would be getting would be some steeda sportlines, and kyb gr-2 shocks and struts. are these any good for a more auto-x style suspension set-up? any personal experiences?

I've had 'em since they first came out -- matched with Eibach Prokits. They are "just OK" on full hard for auto-x use, and kinda crappy for open-track use. They suck on the street. More it's the rear shocks that really suck. The struts are again "just OK."
My other Stang has the Eibachs with the non-adj Tokicos and I like that setup a lot better.
Bottom line is I would not buy them again.

i was given some brand new gr2 front struts and rear shocks and quad shocks and i was planning on putting them on my 88 gt convert with full length mm subframes and rear upper and lower control arms is this gonna make my car handle and ride okay? its all 100k mile stock stuff on there now or should i get some better front struts or what should i do?

88GT If there free and you already have them, then put them on. All these guys are saying is that they are basically a stock performance replacement unit, so dont expect miracles. I am sure you will see an improvment over your 100k mile stockers.
