AGX Vs. GR-2

what is the difference between the AGXs and the GR-2s. I know the AGXs are adjustable but im no weekend racer, i just want something to support coilovers beacuse im dropped pretty low. Are the GR-2s no better than stock struts(which is what ive heard from some) or are they basically the same minus the adjustable features and not to mention cheaper. i got neuspeed race spring on now "its how i bought it" and i like the way it sits but i can tell the shocks are shot. so will AGXs or the GR-2s work with my springs? and what is the difference in the two besides adjust ability?

thanks guys

Re: AGX Vs. GR-2

The GR-2's are basically the same as OEM replacements, so it'd be useless to get them. I'm not sure about the AGX's because I've never really looked into them. Have you considered Koni Yellows at all?

Koni's FTW, but the agx's will do just fine. They'll take the drop in stride and perform well whe doing it

I'd personally still go with some Koni yellows though

Re: AGX Vs. GR-2

I haven't a single bad thing to say about GR2s. I don't know how someone can say they are "no different than stock" they definately have a better valving than factory shocks. I run them with an Eibach Pro Kit which is about 1.5" drop. From what I hear, if you are much over that you will exceed the stoke of the shock. Bad news! I drive hard and a lot. From mountain valleys through the passes and across the prairies of Montana multiple times a year, if fact twice this week almost 400mi round trip. Roads don't follow where they are cut in, they follow property boundaries, rivers, and anything else that is not condusive to a good road. This is my basis for comparison. Real driving. Are they the best autocross or drag shocks. Don't know. But under real situations where comfort, stability and performance are important they are very worth while. When your pitched into a big flat sweeper in the mountains at 80 and you have to avoid debris and there is a pavement patch line and your suspension reacts, settles and you don't veer from your line or lose firm control of the car that's a winner in my book. When I did my springs the factory replacement shocks were about 30k old. Not worn out. The GR2s completely changed the stability of the car. If they fit your budget, I would buy them. I'm not saying the Konis are bad, they are a very reputable company. But at a certain point you just need to say, "what will these do for me that those won't"
