Yes, the shocks were adjusted correctly. After I installed them (a little under a year ago) I had my shop check them every time I brought it in. They adjusted them only when I had the alignment done, which was about a week after I installed them.

Do you think I'd be ok with the DGR springs and the Koni shocks in the rear, or should I get the Koni springs as well?

Keep the curent springs and just adjust the koni shock to what feels best for you. The yellows are nice that they are adjustable.

They were on the softer side as far as the track series go, they didn't bottom out or anything just one day one was leaking all over

Thinking of picking up a pair of KYB AGX that have adjustable dampening for the rear, any thoughts?

Those should work, & you can get them too.
