Ive got munroe gt's in my ef, they arent overall a really rough ride only when going over BIG BUMPS in the road you get a nice thump and the back wheels will hop when trying to accelerate on big bumps, but other then that they are sweet!

Koni Yellows are good, you can adjust the stiffness according to the road trip ahead. Comes in handy...medium for every day driving, stiff all round if you decide to hit the mountain runs or stiff rears when you need to tow. Admittedly, I haven't changed the settings on it in months, but at least I know I can change the settings in 5 mins as I please :).

I'm not too sure how much they were because I only got an overall price on everything. IIRC they were either $1200 or $1400 for all 4.

I am rocking the Monroe GT Sport shocks at the moment in my BF. I dont have any complaints about them to be honest. If anything they arent stiff enough! The old model used to be monroe GT Gas which i heard werent that good.
