    I need some shocks for my AE86, but i have no idea what to get...

    I want a smoother ride so is gas shocks the way to go? At the moment i have Bilsteins- non adjustable on the front and have no idea what the rears are.

    Can anyone give me some alternative shocks that would swap without any work. Something i could pull from a wreckers.

    better to go new
    kyb excell g's r cheapish for new shocks.. can go agx to suit standard struts i think if u want adjustable

    many varieties in the rear dependent on hight what springs ect.
    low ride height you can get sierra shocks. and there are a few others.

    i wouldnt really go to a wreckers for shocks tho.

    I've had my 86 for 15 years, in that time I have tried;

    KYB super special for street(normal length) front and rear
    Potenza gymkahna(normal length) front and rear
    TRD blue street (normal length) front and rear
    Koni yellows(normal length) front and rear
    TRD greens(short) front and rear
    TRD yellows(short) front and rear
    TRD blues(short) front and rear.

    The Koni's and the TRD greens, I didn't like at all.

    KYB super special for street, Potenza gymkahana were quite good, just couldn't lower too much.

    the TRD yellows were very good and the TRD blues(currently running) my fav.

    I also own an AE111 which I recently put KYB climbgears into, they have suprising high rebound and compression dampening!
