I'm looking to replace my shocks and springs because my rears have been plagued by that insanely annoying chirping/squeaking and clunking during normal driving and over all bumps. I drove a VW golf not too long ago and I loved how it felt like driving on rails. I'd like to get somewhat of that feel so I was curious as to what shocks would be best without killing my wallet ( no Koni Yellows). I was considering the koni str.t (streets) with new oem springs. I drive on a pretty rough road to work so lowering springs would not be beneficial to me. I'll only be driving on it for another two months so it's a temporary hazard. Thoughts and opinions appreciated. Also are the koni streets a direct replacement or they need to be modified?

I installed the knoi str.t on my 1st gen last year. They fit right in, no modifications necessary. I like them. But I installed new control arms, tie rods, and various bushings at the same time. Overall, that makes it fell very nice and precise.

Koni had a 25% off special around this time of the year. They currently have the same promotion going on again.
