Suspension!!!!!

is it true that when you are putting lowering springs that you have to put shocks and struts too because the stock ones we have on are too weak? and i also have a really stupid question do you have to buy both shocks and struts or is that something that comes together sorry ppl just learnin. plz explain thnx

With lowering your car it is going to cause the stock shocks and struts to wear out faster. And you can buy the shocks and struts seperately if your going to do this i would recommend the KYB brand they seem to ride rather well in my opinion

Imagine how jealous I was when my boy got racing coilovers for his BMW for $250 to test them for a company ...

I've read the dropzones may squeal and whatnot, everyone here says eibach.

the stock ones are fine for awhile, they will just wear out faster, I am gonna replace them with the 2009 turbo balt set
