Kyb's are a good upgrade,I think $300 a set,the race guys use Koni adjustables,hd Bilsteins.go on eshocks.com u can get them alot cheaper then here.

On my Baja I run Bilsteins on the back & KYB's up front. Bilsteins have more rebound which makes them more suitable for the back. I originally had Bilsteins up front but too much compression dampening made the front too harsh, so went for the KYB's. Much better. Paul

Have no idea. Were on Al when I bought him but was thinking of going to coil overs.To be honest have no idea of what is best for a baja so am interested in this thread.

I use Monroe GT Gas as well and they've always served me well, on and off road.

I won't recommend Monroe, ok on the rear but personally, way too heavy in the valving for the front, and questionable longevety IMO. For street/off road and std mounts, budget; I'd go KYB, could get away with Boge HD for a better quality ride at similar cost. Deluxe I'd go Bilistien ( they are fine on the front too if you get the correct shock) they are better than Koni's when it comes to any dirt/offroad work.

Yes, I have some Fox for my own car, but no testing yet and mine are not std fitment, but there are stock replacements available. They are made in China so make up your own mind. Kings are US I believe , and similar in design, but not sure if they do std fittment.

I got the Fox's for very cheap, so I thought I'd give them a go.... :) So far (no driving yet :td: ) the valving feels great.
