Default Koni's for the snake?

I see that the Koni's are on sale. Are they decent? I'm running Eibach sportlines but other than that the 07 is still all stock. That means a 1.2" drop in the front and 1.7" in the rear. I havent priced out the Tokico's.

I guess after driving the wife's GT that has the FR suspension on it, Im a little jealous. Her's honestly on the street feels and corners much better. If I could get my GT500 to run like that, it'd be totally perfect.

Koni Yellows are good.
But if you want to save some coin, check out Strange adjustables. They are awesome.

I heard nothing but great things about Koni, so I went with their STR.T's in my '06 GT and also added some Eibach springs which dropped it 1.5" all around. Absolutely loving it right now. Im not a track person so I opted out of the more expensive Koni "yellows" and I picked up these "street" level struts and shocks for $320. My ride is perfect for these bumpy roads here in New York City.
