HI & WELCOME TO YC!

depends... i mean, you MAY not have to change them *YET*, mine have been going good for 26000 miles & over 20000 of those miles have been lowered... cobalts have struts in the front & idk what its called in the back, but they're not struts... if that makes any sence, lol...

and ur no bother & yes-cobalts ftw!

i have a question guys!

im fixing to get the eibachs soon myself and when the struts get messed up and you have to get new ones do you simply get the same ones that came on the car or do you get some special aftermarket ones that are ment for lowered cars?

and btw do the eibachs fit a sedan?
