Re: SVO's Suspension Purchase

I'd go the second option. Does anyone know if that price for $1200 is good? I wanna do the same.

SVO XR6 - what place(s) gave you those quotes?

Re: SVO's Suspension Purchase

SVO XR6. You will need a camber kit if you lower the car. The XR does not come with one, and does not have enough adjustment in it to get a propper alignment.

Re: SVO's Suspension Purchase

If your on a budget, I cant speak highly enough of KYB shocks. I also have Kings low springs all round too and as a combination, they are very good. If you do have the cash, go the Koni's. You cant go wrong with them!
