I have been noticing a lot of people seeking help installing various suspension components in the regional forums. This is not unusual, but a few of them are looking to have just lowering springs installed.

To put this simply, it is not a good idea to run anything besides OEM springs or springs that very closely emulate stock ride height on stock struts and shocks. Not only is your car going to not handle well, but your shocks are going to wear out very quickly, and you're not saving a second of install time by not doing one and not the other. Shocks make a huge difference on the handling and ride quality of a car when properly matched to a set of springs, and they are not something that should be skipped when piecing together a new suspension for your car.
