the KYB AGX's are the expensive ones, the GR-2's are the cheap stock replacements, the AGX's are adjustable, the GR-2's arent, i have the AGX's on my car and i love it

The thing that puts me of Koni's is the way they are adjusted. the front has the knob which woudl be great, but I think you have to twist the rear shock to change the setting? I think that the KYB's, with the knob on the shock body, would just be easier to change. Just my $.02

Id take Koni's if I had to choose between the 2. Beleive they can handle a bit more abuse as well as spring rates.

I bought the Koni Yellows--as I was told by someone who had experince with both that the Koni Yellows will hold up better for track days ( road race not drag)

The konis can be rebuilt, revalved and you can get an external adjustment for the rears---as having to pull them off to adjust is a pain in the butt.

Of course--once you have them dialed in, you probably will not need to adjust the rear too much.

You can get them externaly adjustable? That changes the KYb vs Koni argument a ltiile. How do you do this?

friend got koni yellows on his supra, i was very impressed and so was he but i have no experience with the KYB, on a 240 i would probably hit the adjustable kyb's

i got the yellows and prokits and love them. and like they said, the only bad thing i see is the way the backs are adjusted. they work great though, and im all about the lifetime warrentees. theyre a little more expenseive than the AGXs, but the only thing the AGXs have over them are the external adjustment knobs for the rears.
