Okay, I read all the articles that relate to this topic. Yet I still need the advice of all the car wizards here on TI! Here's the deal:

I have a 1998 2dr GS automatic with 17" rims with 205/40-ZR17 tires. I am in dire need of lowering! I have decided on buying Eibach Pro-Kit springs for the 1.3" drop all around. But there is one more problem.

Shocks! I want to keep the price down, but I don't want no-name cheap crap. I don't autocross, so I'd say ride comfort and looks are a bit more important than racetrack-level handling. Since the 1.3" drop is not too drastic, I'm looking for a middle-of-the-road shock, one with pretty decent performance. Koni yellows seem popular, but too much $$$. How about Koni reds? Any experience with those? Also, what about Bilsteins or KYB AGX? Those names pop up a lot too. What do you guys recommend for decent performance with acceptable ride?

Any info would be major major help! I need to buy them this week. Let me know ASAP, thanks in advance!

i have agxs. adjustable and come with a warrantee. the warantee is void if the drop is more than 1.5" but since you're using prokits, you don't have to worry about that. it's 4-way adjustable. i have them set at 2/2. 1/1 is almost like stock. 3s or 4s, the car gets a bit bouncy. i'm not sure if koni reds are cheaper than agxs. koni reds are not adjustable so you're pretty much stuck with the ride that you get. i don't know how they ride though. probably a bit stiffer than stock. good luck.
