Question Eibach pro kit springs with KYB GR2 shocks?

Just put my Eibach pro kit springs on the Pt. I had 1 blown rear shock and the two front struts were bad also.
I called around my area and I got 2 KYB GR2 front struts but all I could get for rear shocks were Monroe sensa-trac.
I know, I know, not a good choice at all. But that's what I could get and I needed the car done by today. I find the back very bouncy.

My question is... is some one running the KYB GR2 shocks with the eibach springs?
If so how are they?
I can order them in.

The lowered stance looks good!

I think the preferred shock/strut for a lowered PT no matter what springs are used is the Tokico blues. I have them in mine with H&R springs and the ride is firm but not harsh and defiantly not bouncy.

I am happy with what I have, sure alot cheaper than the tockickicos. Btw, the stock setup is made by tockicikicos anyway
Tokicos?

Yes the stock shocks and struts are Tokicos (black) which are good for stock height.
Tokico blues are high in demand and make a big difference when lowering.

Haha, no worries.

I had the same problem back in '09 trying to order Goldline Super Slammers from Auto Truck Toys. Charged my account, waited. I waited 3 months until I e-mailed them my receipt and such and demanded a refund. They promptly refunded my money and they took those springs off their site.

Im not even going to try to get Tokicos here in Canada. The KYBs are cheap enough. What the hell.
If I dont like them Ill get something else.
I trust Busa_Powered.
Im not into racing kids in their Hondas for pinks or doing auto-cross.
I just want to go for weekend drives with the kids and wife and look a little classy with out hitting a bump and the kids heads hitting the roof..
I ll let you all know how I make out. I may end up with KYB Mono tubes. We will see
