Default Koni Shock Absorbers? or TRD Shocks/Struts?

Well I am considering on purchasing some shocks soon for my lovely xB. I am currently running on these R*SR downsprings. So far my ride has gotten pretty rough since my springs. Well I juss read that the koni shocks are adjustable so I leaned a bit toward it, but then again... TRD is TRD. So people with Koni shocks and TRD Shocks... any suggestions?

Get the Koni's, I have the TRD's and they have gone soft before/around the 30k mark. Mostly highway driving too. About a year and a half old now.

Changing out the rear shock only to a Koni really helps the ride. If you have the cash, splurge for the whole set.

FYI, we have the Koni's for the xB in stock and they are priced as follows:

Koni Sport Front fitment @ $166.00 *
Koni Sport Rear @ $100.00 *

* = Plus shipping.

Feel free to call me if you would like to place an order, or if ordering online at: http://www.tirerack.com/a.jsp?a=DJ1&...sion/index.jsp feel free to enter my name at the end of the order in the "Previous Contacts" area and I will be glad to keep an eye on your order as it processes!

I'm guessing that's $166 and $100 a piece? so.. $532 plus shipping?

You can also get them at LTB Motorsports and Sohi Performance (http://www.sohiperformance.com/ directs to their eBay store) for a few bucks less with free shipping.

Used to have an '82 RX-7 which I used to autocross. Installed a set of Koni shocks/struts & it made the already rough ride waaaaaaay rougher!! That was with the adjustable front struts at the softest setting. There are benefits when competing, but made the car a lot harder to live with day to day.

I've heard the the xB has a rough ride to begin with, so wonder about intalling these rock-hard Konis.

This is completely not the case for the XB!!!! Your experience with the RX-7 does not apply as not all Koni's are the same.

Default best price on Koni Sport?

This is the best price I could find. I know it is an old thread but I found it when I was trying to decide on whether to go with the Koni sport yellow struts and shocks so I thought I'd share.

Koni 8710-1403Sport & 80-2827Sport Sport Series Yellow Shocks for a Toyota Echo Scion xB xA Free Shipping
