question about shocks

hey guys, i have an '03 accord coupe. i just have a question about which shocks you think are better: the kyb gr2 series or koni yellows? i'm looking around and the price difference for the kyb's are about 250 as opposed to the koni yellow's, which are about 500. is it worth the price to get the koni's, or are kyb's just as good as the koni's? thanks!

kyb GR-2 are OEM replacement shocks. You can see them on the KYB website.

Well...I have the Koni Yellows and they are way, way better than stock and they feel great on my car! I like the fact that you can adjust how firm or soft you want the ride to be.

i don't think the kyb's are adjustable.. i found this site for the kyb's and koni yellows.

http://www.shox.com/appguide/shoxsho...hp?inv=illegal
http://www.partsandaccessories.com/a...rber&brand=kyb

is the GB for koni yellows still on? i'd like to jump in on that..and raddy, you're right.. the cheapest i found w/o GB is 550 free S/H.. but if GB is on, where can i find out about that?

Eibach has shocks too now but I'm running Koni Yellows. They are ok. Been spoiled by a full suspension setup on previous car (JIC, ingall, ST, spoon, and Type-R suspension parts)
