    Question Which Shocks And Springs? Please Help!

    I would just like to know what the diff. would be if I changed my struts and shocks to bilsteins or kept stock? My car has 50,000 miles and I have bought eibach pro kit. Is there a diff. if I change the shock or springs or not? Wont it also still ride ruff either way? Please let me know?

    Lowering springs on stock shocks will ride rough regardless. The best shocks for lowering springs are koni's. They are expensive but worth every penny. Bilsteins would probably feel good for a few hundred miles before the effects of a lowered car get to you. Us koni guys are very pleased with the shocks and how good they feel when lowered.

    What settings are you using for your shocks?
