There is no reason why you couldn't use Koni sport yellow shocks with your otherwise stock suspension. These units are very high quality and will result in the same ride height. If set somewhere around 1/2 to 3/4 turn from full soft, they will approximate the stock ride but with better control and handling. They need not be adjusted again, unless to compensate for wear many, many miles into the future. Since the labor costs as much or more to replace rear shocks, I'd go with these lifetime guaranteed shocks over anything less.
