    you could, but for the $ your not gaining much w/ the 09 dampers- it was first thought that w/ the decent increase in spring rates w/ the 09 we'd see decent increases in damping- RCE had the 09 dampers dyno'd and saw very little increase in damping

    if you find a set used and cheap, might be worth it- otherwise I'd opt for Koni's or Bilsteins

    Since I wasn't apart of that group deal over @ NASIOC in the begining - those gtworx/bilsteins are 1k... and as for the Koni inserts - i dunno if i trust inserts in the same stock tubing...

    Why has no one made a decent strut/shock combo for the 08+, its been 2 yrs already...

    LOL, love the username! I dunno about paying Koni all that money for inserts, but its definitely a cheaper option vs the gtworx bilsteins.

    I may just bite the bullet and for over 1k to gtworx...i wanna do a complete suspension for spring 2011 - tires, stuts/shocks, sways, tophats, bushings, etc.. and the stupid strut/shocks are holding me back.

    Bilsteins will be worth the $ and Koni's are worth the time, both good options- there won't be any better options than those

    no one else holds a candle to Koni or Bilstein

    Does anyone know why the 09 shocks/springs don't show up on opposedforces.com?
