Look into investing in a set of Koni Sports (yellows), but prepare to spend about $500 or so.

Oh one more thing, Ground Control coilover sleeves are designed to work with certain types of shocks. Be sure you know what kind you have and I believe there is a type of adapter to make the Konis fit through the sleeve.

i remember that if u had koni yellows u have to buy a GC that is specially made for the koni yellows, so u would have to get another type of shock, i recommend tokico illuminas

if im wrong about that can someone tell me cuz i have yellows and i really want GC's

Buy KYB AGX's. If you buy Koni or Bilsten you have to pay 40 bucks extra for the adapter for your ground controls.

I am not sure. You might have to send ground control an email or call them.

Do you already have Koni or Bilsten shocks?

You are right!! They are about $40 more total cost for the GC's that fit Bilstein and Koni Yellows.

I have Bilsteins and getting GC's shortly!

Then you are fine. Just buy the ones with the adapter on them. Check out groupbuy. Make sure you tell them you have koni shocks. They will set you up. I paid 290 for mine shipped. Yours will be 40 bucks more then the ones they sell because of the adapters you need.

Ground Controls are good. I don't know how many people will be wanting to get rid of them. You could always call ground control and ask them.

Their number is (530)677-8600.
