Default sc400 Shocks and springs options

I was looking into shocks and i found the kyb agx. I thinks this are pretty good shocks and im planning to put them with eibach springs if i find some.
If anyone has other ideas on different shocks and springs let me know trying to decide whats good for my sc400. I don't want coilover, they would lower my car to much and make my car too stiff making feel like a rabbit hehe

the supra where getting in my mind too. It would probably compensate more in the drop aspect. It might look better. That's a good one....

Found the AGX for the supra on Amazon for the best price after much searching.
They were only 100 each last week. Bought 4 supra springs off ebay for 65 delivered.
Hoping for a stiffer sportier ride with a slight drop.

ok so i was looking into the Espelir lowering spring for the supra because as far as i know the kyb agx are for a tt supra, so i need the springs from a supra tt. The only springs for a supra are the espiler gt and supposedly only give 10mm front and 15mm rear on drop? i need some to confirm this...
Or any other good lowering springs beside eibach and espelir?

answer300 yes, but there isn't supra springs in that series. The only espilir lowering spring for supra available are the gt series, couldn't find any other. I cant put sc400 lowering springs on a supra tt kyb agx shock right?
whats shocks are you using?

What are the advantages to the KYB AGX vs the OEM replacement KYB Excel-G? Are the AGX going to provide better performance, being a Supra spec part, or is it just that they offer up more lowering spring options?

Cost is pretty similar on the two, but the AGX are about $20 more expensive per strut.

stretchp2 I am still deciding on what to go with i might end up with some coilovers but still don't know which coilovers. I want good suspension, The AGX and Springs are a good option if there would be a stiffer spring. the Espelir ASD lower to much and are soft so that doesn't compensate much in handling performance. If there only where some eibach sportline lowering springs it would be awesome but can't find any...
