Sadly DGR is crap.


Several members have had KYB AGX full setup on their cars for about a year with no issues and that includes one who does autox.

atleast the rear ones are. agx are made for lowered applications right? says it will stiffen up stock but Ive heard others using it with about 2-3 inch drops. I still plan on using the dgr springs and perches in the rear
