meaning the FE5 shocks and struts are the best upgrade for a cobalt besides full coilovers

Haha always wondered that.

if you lower your car with just sportlines your stock shocks and struts will eventually blow due to the stress. you could get those shocks but alot of people including my self get the FE5 ones because there from the SS models which sit lower than the base models do. there fore the rate is better and they will last longer with sportlines
