    shock recommendations for sportlines, on a budget

    I have Eibach Sportlines and I need some new shocks. Ive had the stock shocks on with these springs for about 8 years so the shocks are pretty worn out. I need a good replacement thats better than stock, but dont have alot of money to spend. Anybody have any recommendations? the car is mainly a daily driver, but i want decent handling also. Thanks.

    I can't even imagine how bad the shocks on that car are by now!! Obviously we are all gonna say "koni!! No way around it!" but with a budget, well that wont work. I have Stranos Bilsteins HD's on my car and the eibach pro-kit, now while it is not the best ride ever I actually love it! Its not wobbly at all and its somewhat stiff, I just like how I can feel stuck to the road and not wobbly/floaty over it. I have not ridden in a car with a Koni setup though so I can't say how it will ride but I'm sure someone with koni's will chime in you can get the bilsteins for about $400 I think.

    I think the problem you're gonna going to have is the sportlines have so little travel that a shock that keeps you off the bumpstops needs to be uber stiff and it will ride like shit. Since it's a daily driver, you really might want to consider a different spring package.
