Default KYB AGX vs. GR-2

Is there a notable difference in performance between these?

Tarmac?

NOTE: this is my DD, I don't race or anything, though I plan on tracking it at some point for Autocross, maybe.

AGX's are adjustable, GR-2's are not. Other adjustable options are Tokico D-Specs and Koni sport dampers. Of course, if you are made of money, Ohlins have a fixed perch damper.

Edit: dunno what else is available for the old school chassis.

I just installed KYB AGX struts with Prodrive springs, and I'm VERY impressed. The car grips like nobody's business and still soaks up bumpy pavement very nicely (while still retaining a firm feel).

I haven't had a chance to play with the adjustment yet, I just have them set on 2 right now.

Alright - and hey, can I use my stock mounts or whatever? Will they just bolt right up? Or do I have to buy more stuff
