View Full Version : Lowering, springs only

Will my stock struts/shocks die real quick if i don't change them? My H&R sport springs lowers 1.2 inch and 1.3 inch. Is it necessary to change the shocks? I just spent $ for the shocks on sway bars. ><

You almost always want to do everythging all at one. they will wear out over time and I don't think the ride will be as great as you would hope.

shocks are a bit out of my budget for now. :( How would the ride be compare to aftermarket shocks? firmer? softer? would my shocks die right away if i track the car with springs only setup?

If i go for struts/shocks. How are the Koni ones compared to Bilstein other than they cost a bit less? should i just go for koni or spend those extra dollars for bilstein?

Change the shocks if you change your springs. The stock cheapie Monroes will die if they haven't already. You'll then have to spend twice the amount of time and possibly money to swap them out. While you're doing that you may also want to change out the front strut bearing and mount. Bout $30 in parts.

Koni yellows are good.
