it's about an inch and 1/2 front and a inch and 3/4 rear
GR-2's will be FINE, my GF's brother had them on his rex w/ progress springs (2" drop) and it rode pretty smooth, i have the AGX's on my car w/ the progress auto "Swap" springs (custom rated springs for the b-swap, 2" or so drop) and they ride smooth

the gr-2's will blow with a 2" drop for sure.

no way, they are designed to handle a 1.75" drop from KYB, they might wear a little faster w/ anything lower that that but they will not blow out any faster then they would w/ a 1.75" drop because not much more stress is put on the valving of the shock w/ such a minimal suspension change

damn, i must be amazing then because i blew a set with a 1.5" drop on coilovers.

I thought the only shock that could handle over a 1.5" drop for an extended period of time was Bilisten or Koni? Because i just went through buying a suspension for my car and i know that the Tokico Illumina's are only designed for a 1.5" drop (i'm running them with a 1.25" drop) and the blues for like 1.25" if i remember correctly. I'm pretty sure the KYB's are exactly the same (agx's and gr-2's).

1.5" maybe what their warranty is limited to but it does not mean the shock cannot sustain lower heights then that, lowering any further then 2" will gain you nothing anyway.......i have been rollin on my car w/ a 2" drop for quite sometime now and it rides smooth as hell
