Exclamation Lowering Shocks

Hi everyone!
I am in need of some professional advice but will settle for you guys instead. I kidd!! So the issue I have currently is that I need to replace the rear shocks on my MK1 Eibach Pro kit and I am unsure what to replace them with. I of course, want to replace with something compatible but want to spend the leat amount of dough. Best I can find is direct replacement from Summit for $62. Is that my best/only option for replacement? Thanks everyone!

$62 a piece sounds damn cheap. I would be all over that if it was a direct replacement.

Have you called eibach to see what they say?

KYB sells adjustable shocks and struts for a decsent price aswell.

I didn't call eibach since I purchased the set second hand from a member but did notice that their "million mile" warranty would be just on their springs and their strut and shocks are only for about a year or so. I guess I'll just go with the summits since the KYBs are more expensive.

If they work & you have no issues w/ them, I'd get them.

I have a set of KYB AGX on my track car miata, and they are pretty good. The fact that you can adjust the damping is a plus so you can go from aggressive to comfort. I don't know much about the SVT's handling since I just got mine, and haven't had a chance to track it so I could be wrong about the KYB's
