Quad Shocks

Thought while I had the car on stands that I would change the struts and rear shocks. Advanced told me the quad and rear shocks were the same. They are not! Do the quad shocks ever go bad since they are not under the same load as the rear shocks?

Most of those guys wouldn't know what a car was if they got hit by one. And yes they can go bad like any other shock. Take em off and check the rate of compression and expansion. But if they've been on there a while, it would never be a bad idea to replace them.

Your right. Bought the shocks online to get a discount. Used the tech support for the question on fitment. Guess tech support is not much better than counter help. After I take them off and compress them what should I look for? Feel or how long it takes them to expand?

Both. Feel for sure, and make sure they expand at a decent, steady rate.

Install a set of aftermarket LCAs and toss them. They are unnecessary once you upgrade the garbage lowers.

Although I would generally agree, they're not completely useless. Some still need them to limit wheel hop even with good quality LCA's like MM or Steeda. I even kept mine after putting MM lca's on. I would recommend if the OP does decide to put some lca's on, keep those quads around and see if you like it or not.
