    100,000 miles

    I recently hit the 100,000 mile marker and was looking to freshen up my suspension. I have had the Eibach Pro kit since 10,000 miles and alse have BMR PHR, LCA's and Strut Tower Brace. Currently my ride handles well but not as it used to. It bottoms out on bumpy rides and feel somewhat "Squishy". What would be a good cure? I was thinking about replacing the bushings and maybe doing a new Shock/Spring Combo? Any suggestions on brands or parts? Thanks

    when you got the lowering kit did you change your shocks? you should have, if you're still riding on the stock shocks on a lowered car you're askin for an accident. for your bushings i'd just go with the 1le setup

    damn your prokits have lasted that long? im impressed, mine only lasted a couple years and the right rear was sagging like 2 in lower than the left. id definately replace the springs and shocks at least

    100k on shocks is alot. time for new ones. the compression and rebound of the shocks just isn't what it used to be. there is a rubber seal that seperates each chamber. just like a piston ring. once it wears out, the fluid seeps into both sides without compressing. the 90k on springs is getting up there as well.
