HELP! what shocks are available for the XI?!

Hey everyone, i have a set of h&r springs and I've been trying to figure out what shocks would go well with the 2009 XI sedan. I was thinking of koni yellows but i couldn't find info if they were with XI or not.
Are there any other suggestions that mite work or me? just looking for shocks to go with my H&R sport springs.

THANKS SO MUCH!

Nothing available as of yet. Rumor has it Bilstein will be releasing the B6/B8s for our cars this year, but they've been saying that for awhile now... You can join the rest of us in waiting, heres the thread.

Just read the first few pages of this subforum and you'll know all you need to know.

Seems like springs only is a trade off. Good looks, a little firmer ride, but ride is bouncy when going over bumps...

thanks guys. i've been reading the first few pages of the forum but im getting mixed answers. some say the shocks will go in a short while while others say as long as you dont track your car the oem shocks should last you. does anyone have any first hand experience with this? thanks again everyone!

Ever thought about coil-overs?

H&R Coilovers are available
KWv1 and KWv3 Coilers are also available

You will be able to have an adjustable drop without sacrificing your OEM shocks in the long run.
