Aftermarket shocks?

I know this is possibly a loaded question, but I'd like to hear the opinions of those that have swapped out the rear shocks and/or front springs. What did you go with? I don't want to drop a lot of...

Honestly I don't see you getting close to $10k for it. I'd say you're looking at $8k-$9k. Personally I'd buy one with more farkles albeit more miles for the same money.

How hard of a compound is the K60's? They do look good, but if they're a harder compound then I would suspect that they wouldn't do as good in the rain or on hard surface, other than wear.
