Had 'em on my old Volvo 850 paired with Eibach springs. Seemed decent enough.

The car, however, was a spectacular pile of crap so it was dispensed with not long after.

I had some Mopar S3/KW V2's on my SRT4.

I liked them and that is of zero use to you.

Using Koni yellows with Eibach.
Much better than stock. Plus they are adjustable (dampening only)

They're $50/more corner. If you're going to do it, at least do it right.

If he wanted to do it right, he would have asked about Bilsteins.. but he's asking about budget Konis. From what I can tell, the Oranges (STR.T) are cheaper than the OE KYBs.

Gr2's are around $300, str.t are $400, and a nasioc vendor says they're way better than gr2's.

The mazderp community sucks balls. That's why I'm here.

It doesn't take much to be way better than GR2s.

Well, I'd like better than fine. Oem is not super stiff, but it is harsh over small bumps, like they tuned it on glass roads, and rebound damping sucks. I'd like something better than that crap.
