so, i am looking to replace all the springs and shocks/struts on my SC and don't want to cough up 600 bucks for the Illuminas. I have been looking trying to find info on what will swap in and it looks like the KYB gr2s will bolt right in to the super coupe? is this correct? anyone no of other struts that will work?

some say they will all fit, some people say only certain brands are compatible. thanks guys!

Shocks

Tokico ARC shocks and strurts are cheapest at Prostreetonline. I got mine there.

I put 1.6" Vogtland lowering springs on my SC last year with KYB GR2's. The fronts are definately softer then the stockers. When these "wear out" or I get tired of them adjustable Koni's will be going in.

Pretty sure i am going to go with the tokico blues. for the price i think the hp kit is going to be just the right feel i am looking for.

well, right now the ARC shox in there are almost 20 years old and have worn out top strut rod bushings... i don't even think they work cuz i don't notice a difference when i flip the switch. so i'm pretty sure the blues will feel GRRRRRREAT compared to that. I don't need it to corner like its on rails, i just dont want it making thunking sounds when i go over bumps, and i'd like to know that this part of the car has been sorted out so i can concentrate on drivetrain stuff (gears, diff, etc). thanks for all your help guys!

Just to add I have the tokico blues very pleased with the results with the 1.5 drop and the 1 1\4 swaybar . It handles firm but still nice ride over bumps. :)
