I need to replace my shocks all around and my car is taking a beating from all the pot holes in NYC. Outside of the koni kit and spings at GS what are my low cost options. I have not been able to a price on OME shocks, I looked at eeuro parts and autoparts ware house and have not seen great options. Being unemployed and all I do not want to break the bank $750+. any sudjestions

You can get just koni shocks for $643 from GS. They are adjustable too.

I saw the koni's for $643 on GS and the kit for with the spings $750 or so. From reading older threads, other folks have mentioned that the koni's with stock springs make the car bouncy. So I figured I have to get the springs to. I am unemployed at the moment I have a hard time spending the last $1,000 of lunch money that I have on shocks.

I wanted to know if anyone has a more cost effective option for decent/ heavy duty shocks for the NYC pot holes, man hole covers, mystery surprise attack sink holes. what is the cost for standard OEM replacement shocks for the 2000 9 3

thanks

It's the other way around. Koni springs on stock shocks will be bouncy
