Car is presently having a new rear put in and wanted to upgrade my shocks and springs, wondered if anyone could give me some pointers?

I have looked into the QA1's but seems they are more for dragging and not everyday usage. Koni's look sweet but the price tag is a bit much considering the price of the new rear (plus having new window motors put on) so all I think I am left with is Bilsteins...

Whats your thoughts on Bilstein HD's? And if I do go with Bilstein HD's then what is your recommendation for springs?

Ok if I get any more PO'ed right now my head is gonna pop off...

I got a call earlier from the shop and he suggested me go with the KYB AGX's and I recall reading quite a bit about how good a shock they were so he gave me some prices and I told him to go for it.

Well I was in a rush when he called so I didnt have time to do a price comparison online but now Im hot to trot since I been looking around online.

Shop quote for fronts only (not including install) $350

SummitRacing quote for ALL 4 (including overnight shipping) $416.75

TireRack quote for all 4 (Including 2 day shipping) $386.19

WTF??? Am I stupid here or am I being plugged in the bunghole by this shop?

And now I dont know what I can do since I told him to do it and he said he would have my new rear and probably the rear shocks put on by tonight and when I called of course their closed till the morning...

What if any options do you think I have and or what would you guys do under these circumstances?

Now he got me wondering how much he is ripping me off for the rear and for sure there is no getting out of that cause its probably already bolted on.... @#%@%#%~$#%!%$!$
