    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    Thumbs down BAH! listen to this...

    found out what my set up was FINALLY:

    stock decarbon's in back and bilsteins in front with eibach pro kit all around and an adj panhard bar.

    I've ordered some SFC's and LCA's and a big ass front sway bar...but do you think that those un matched shocks are gonna kill me?

    Both of those shocks will not be any good with those springs. (Bilstiens only are good for stock springs unless they are revalved)

    Squeeze a better price out of Darkness for his DA's...

    with the wedding 2 months away, i couldn't even fathom 1000-1200 out the door that fast.

    But don't you think atleast having koni rears will help it? I'm getting lower control arms and allready have a pan hard bar

    Of course it will help.

    Keep an eye on the front bilstiens though as they will wear out fast from bottoming out with those springs.

    You can always replace them later but damn the fronts are a bitch and if you are putting in Lower A-arms it is the perfect time to change out the dampers.

    The difference is the 3rd gens (while cheaper) have to be removed from the car to be adjusted where the 4th gens have an adjuster on the top of the shock and can be quite a bit softer/harder while on the car.

    there are a lot of people that think the 3rd gens are better b/c they are a monotube shock where as the 4th gens aren't. i haven't seen any actual proof of it, but people are claiming it has better rebound response then the 4th gens. personally, i am going with 4th gens all around as soon as i get time for it all (damn traveling )

    Those are the instructions to adjust the 4th gen shocks.

    The 3rd gen dampers have to be removed from the car to be adjusted (not sure if you can just unbolt one side top or bottom???)
