Bilstein vs Koni Yellow vs MM shocks/struts

Has anyone gone from from a Koni Yellow to a Bilstein or a Max Motorsports shocks/struts or vise-versa? I'm trying to decide on a high quality shock and strut setup and am wondering how much of a difference there even is between these? I suppose you could through the Tokico D specs in this group too.

I always figured they were more for drag racing. Is that not really the case?

They can be set up for drag racing, road racing, or just the street.

Coastal bend Mustangs of Texas

I recently lowered my pony 1.5" front & 1.1" w/progressive springs using the oem struts & shocks. The ride is a little rough but, after 10,000 miles the oem's are still ok. I'm buying a driveshaft 1 piece & let the pony wait until July to go to FR track shocks or Bilstein if I can get the rears.

I’ll definitely check them out as well. I didn’t realize they had a broad application.

Mine had over 50k miles when I got my lowering springs. My OEM dampers were shot already lol. I currently have Koni STR.T all around and they aren’t terrible, but they are pretty much the cheapest you can go with aside from trying to pickup something OEM-like.
