Well I haven't put them on yet but I will be soon Im almost at 100k on the SVT.

I went with the Koni yellows along with the Steeda springs and from what I've heard and read on this setup, it is really nice another spring suggestion was Apex springs but they are hard to come by nowadays.

The Konis on the SOFTEST setting are stiffer than the SVT Dampers.

Konis can be re-valved/refreshed when they wear out 70-100k miles

at the same time I install these I will be doing a full front end refresh with MOOG problem solver all grease-able units.

Inner Tierods
Outer Tierods
Lower Balljoints
Upper Strut mounts with new bearing
Stabilizer endlinks Not sure yet if Im going to go with MOOG or MASSIVE on these

along with this I will be replacing all the rubber bushings with the Full Poly Kit from Prothane, since I Have the Massive Toe arms and Camber arms I took the stock ones out and put the poly bushings in and sold them here and those 2 parts alone paid for the full Poly kit.

If you get the konis I will suggest you change the springs sportlines are "spongy"

Go with springs in this order:
1.Apex
2.Steeda
3.Koni
4.FRRP
