With the whole front end being stock, not sure if Koni will make a difference now, but if you plan on upgrading later, get the better shocks. If you plan on staying stock, you can just get Monroes, they're cheap and much better than the factory stock.

I "upgraded to KYB" shocks and then finally the Koni Reds. The KYB make no sense. I compared the two and the KYB had massive rebound. I have springs for that. I want the shocks to dampen and moderate. The Koni's are amazing. I have 400lbs springs on the race car, but 1/2 adjustment is perfect. The car use to actually bounce in situations with the KYB shocks. With Koni, I love the car and TRUST the back end.
