Default New suspension setup.

I want to change my suspension setup. Right now the car has KYB GR2 shocks and intrigue springs. I bought the car with that setup and im not happy. The look is perfect but the ride sucks, the front end seems to bounce alot. I was thinking about either putting stock springs back on or buying the adjutible KYB AGX's and getting some SSC or other set or lowering springs. Getting low mile stock springs would be like $50 plus install. AGX's and diffrent springs would probably be around $700 plus install. What do you guys think.

The issue here is money. I shouldn't waste money on better suspension parts its still a FWD sedan it will never handle good.

I ordered 4 new KYB GR2's and im getting a used set of stock springs with under 20K from 1fastGTP. I will sell the KYB's and the Springs that are on the car right now as a package. I decided not to get the expensive shocks/springs, I think my money would be better spent for headers or rockers. Grand prix's cant handle for shit anyway.

Anyone know what else I would need for this swap besides the shocks/springs. Will I need to replace bushings or strut mounts?

How many miles on your mounts? If it is more than 50K you will want to think about replacing them.

Other than that you should be able to reuse it all.
