Default Lost in the shock department!

So I will be installing some BMR springs in my car.. I only want one inch maximum.. I was wondering what would be a decent priced good reliable shock that would go well with these springs? Any help is appreciated.

i though BMR springs dropped 1.5" or more? I just bought Koni 4/4 today from Sam Strano. From all my reading these seem to be the cream of the crop.

Bilstiens are on national backorder. You could call BMR and see what they personally suggest for what you are looking for.

Call Sam Strano - I haven't bought anything from him yet, but he spent about 30 minutes on the phone with me one day last week - after 5:00 - just discussing my plans for the car and giving me a very good education about how all the suspension and chassis parts work together. All for a potential cusomer. Needless to say I was impressed and will definitely be an actual cusatomer in the near future.

Konis are an investment. Lifetime warranty for the original owner... think of it this way: you could buy "OK" shocks over and over again for the life of the car, or you can get the best option out there, and never have to buy them again. JMHO
