Anyone running these KYB shocks?

Found these on Ebay and am thinking of grabbing them . Will they work with custom springs? the set I have are 1& 1/2 in. lower.

Thanks !!

thanks ! That generally seems to be the consensus. What about springs- Eibach ?

Bilstein HD, H&R springs on my car. Eibach, and Ireland Engineering are also good choices. Really depends on what drop you want

Don't want alot of drop,and ultimately I'll be running with the wider 14" or 15" wheel/tire combo with fender flares. It's all coming down to which Bilstein ( sport of HD )will be more comfortable to drive ( not a track car ) long term .
So many options !! And so much disparity in the pricing between suppliers for the same parts !! This car is one of those where you leave your excitement at the door when your shopping to rebuild.....
