Default HD shocks

I was wondering about ways to improve my handling and think heavy duty performance shocks might help. I want to corner good but I don't want to give up my ride smoothness. Any reliable brands out there that you know of that would fit that request?

I have the FE1, so the base suspention which wasen't bad when I got the car, but with 110K on it its wearing out. How much do struts go for? You're probably right, I do hear a clunking while going over bumps so stuts are in need of replacement.

I have KYB'*, they cost around 70$ a piece for fronts and 40$ for rears. Maybe it was the other way around, either way should be around 250 total.

Check your stabilizer bar endlinks and bushings. You might be in need of replacing those. That'* alot cheaper than struts, and easier.
