Koni makes single-adjustable Yellows for the 1st gen cars. Since you can't get B6s for the rear (you can, but Bilstein simply refuses to actually make any), these are probably what I'll end up going with in the event we need new struts/shocks.
Really, I had Koni's on my Cobalt and really liked them.

Yup! I just did full Koni yellow SA's on my brother's '01 Mustang GT last year.

And yeah @Blasirl , Bilstein B8s would be a great option, too.

For ours, I'd really prefer the B6s, as I don't expect to put any kind of lowering spring on the car, and would prefer not to have adjustables, but who knows...

The Only Koni's I can find show there for Desiel's. Will they fit on any Gen1?

I'm not sure why they'd only say they fit diesels. The diesels would have gotten specific shocks/struts, but I don't think they're physically any different when it comes to mounting.

That answers my question. Thanks!

I ordered some KONI Shocks and Struts from tire rack. It looks like they have to order them from KONI.

I'm sure you'll post it, so I'll be anxiously awaiting how you like them, since they'll probably be what we go with.

I'll definitely post it. I'll be interested to see how long it takes to get them. I'm going to over Memorial Day weekend to visit family. If think I can get them installed and aligned before then that's what I'll do. Otherwise it'll be in June.

I don't remember my brother's taking very long last April or May. I think his came from Tire Rack as well, and I believe they also drop-shipped them.

Drop shipping would make sense. It said they had 1 of the shocks in stock. And the other shock and the Front struts are special order.

ADDITIONAL UPDATE: I'm starting to think I might be a little bit insane. o_O With the purchase of the Lowering Springs, Struts, Shocks, and Camber Bolts I've surpassed $10,000 of modifications on my Cruze, albeit most of them are not installed yet.

I wanted to post an update for @MP81 , Tire Rack sent me an email and said that the ETA for the shocks and struts is estimated at 2-4 weeks for arrival at their distribution facility. Their distribution facility is only 90 minutes away from my house so it'll be next day after that.

I paid more than that just for my car, I am not telling about extras where my wife might see them.

Hot ****. That might still be better timing than I'm seeing for my subframe connectors. I ordered them about a month ago and still have no update on when they might actually ship.

Wow.

Where did you order them from?
Jegs, but they're drop-shipping from Global West. GW's site does say they're experiencing delays, which is understandable, but I'd think by now I should have at least an update. I'll probably email Jegs here to see if they're heard anything, or can prod GW for an update. I ordered the GW solid body bushings as well, albeit from Summit Racing, and those were in stock and I had them within a week.
