KYB AGX's are great dampers for normal driving.


the whole thing about the 1.5 inch warrenty is some bull ****.


i had my car like this for 2 years the dampers were still wroking great when i took them off and to my knowledge are still working find on another HT members car.



i now run koni yellows and they are a much better damper but for daily use the agx's were fine

Koni Yellows suck ***. My only experience with them has been bad (two sets of them leaking and, thus, failing within one year), yet I road race on my AGX's and they're wonderful.

Thats interesting to know. I've only heard good things about the Koni's before. I'm running AGX's right now, and liking them. I was thinking about getting the koni's, will need to think twice now. I'm running a 2 inch drop on the agx's. Been going strong for 2 years.

Oh, they did replace them for free. Too bad that doesn't help me install and uninstall them on my car and succeed at the racing I enjoy . I can't vouch for the Civic Konis, but the RSX ones that I'm familiar with just plain blow.

words will not describe it... teh ride will be a bit stiffer and ride firmer if you lower your car instead of bouncing around like an impala on bags... I am sure thats what you want to hear so im happy to oblige.

I guess different strokes for different folks, im not buying agx again they blew within no time. I have a lifetime warranty on them but I have to pay 280 for labor and alignment for them to get replaced.
