I'd spend the extra money and go AGX.

You can toy with the stiffness until you find the settings you like, while the GR-2's, you're kind of stuck with what you got.

DUDE! I just posted the same question up, I was curious to know if this setup would work, but i guess i know now. I'm using my standard GR-2's by the way...kinda broke right now.

gr2s are a little rough on bumps..but on a smooth road they feel great..i can only complain that when there are multiple continous bumps it feels rough..i'd upgrade to AGX's when i get the loot..by the way ur stock struts will be dead after a few months of lowering it..and gr2s after a year or so..neither are made for lowered cars..while agx's are..

agx's wont last long either. if you are tight on money, go with the Gr2's expecialy if you put alot of miles on your car since it wont cost as much to replace them.

i should go on gr-2's then.... they are like 67$ a piece compared to AGX for 169 a piece. since i don't go on performance, just for looks. so GR-2 all the way then..

Ok so here are the pics the bump stops i have on the car now are generic. they are made of a harder rubber....
1st pic is just bumpstop
2nd pic is the bumpstop with the lower bushing that p10det is talking about..
3rd pic is bumpstop lower bushing and the tophat
4th pic is the lower cushing as you can see its been bored out.. the rubber is pretty much deteriating.


so when the lower bushing goes on the the strut it useuall gets stoped by the metal ring on the strut... but because the rubber is worn out and old.. it is able to pass the metal ring...

1st pic is how its supposed to be..
2nd pics is how the lower bushing was found...



for now i will go buy a washer to get the car back running untill i get the parts i need.... the there are 3 items i'd like to get... oem bumpstop,oem lower bushing,oem upper bushing (the bushing that sits on the top of the tophat). do you know if this is what they are called.. i dont want to go to the local dealer and sound like a tard trying to explain to them what i need.. last time i did that the guy was an ass.....maybe justinp10 can help me out here....

whats diffrence between oem bumpstops and the koni bumpstops... adavantages disadvantages... price difference... thanks....

reference. you may need to add some spacers above the mount for thread engagement on the top of the shock

I'll tell you exactly what's wrong because I've seen a couple of others do the same...

The stock dust boot has a metal washer on it that goes on top of that metal ring on the damper rod.

You can see it below the rubber bush on the attached pic.

The bush then sits on top of that, then the top mount, bush above that and then the washer and nut. You've either changed dust boots to a different brand without the metal washer, or the metal has rusted through.
