6th Gen A$$ just got tighter...

OK on Saturday the finally game in, received from Activetuning my new KYB AGX 8-way adjustable gas shocks. The install was easy since the 6th Gen Max has an independent rear suspenision and access to remove the shocks are under the wheel well where as on the 4th and 5th Gen you have to unbolt the top from inside the trunk. Anyway easy install, took me about 20 minutes on each side. I dialed them up to a 6 and BAM off for a test drive.

The ride felt nice an predictable and her A$$ stayed tight in the turn. Take off was also flatter and straight an their is no longer a SQUAT (FWD cars rears dip on take off). Anyway thanks Deus for turning me on to them, overall in cas someone asks my suspension mods include:

KYB 8-way adjustable gas shocks
Racingline Endlinks
Eiback Pro Street lowering springs
STILLEN Rear Lower sway bar
STILLEN Front Upper strut brace

Peace dudes and dudette's...

The AGX's were one of my favorite mods, I ran them for over 2 years with no problems. I gotta tell you though, handling isnt anywhere close on springs as it is on coilovers. If you ever feel the need to further enhance the handling of the car and drop about 30 lbs, coilovers are where its at. Other than my little problem with the rear drivers side I have no complaints.

Thanks, something I will definitely consider. Right now if I spring another G I'm going to go with a complete ZEX NOS install...
