gonna get some H&R lowering springs for my 02 gt since its in my price range, do i have to get aftermarket shocks and struts to go with the lowering springs? or can I stick with OEM ones? i was told i had to b.c the H&R springs would wear out the OE shocks and struts.......

oh and i was thinking of Ebiach shocks and struts w/ H&R lowering springs...

Re: suspension..

You don't have to because of the springs but it is better to because it is eaiser to do them at the same time since your already in there. (even if a shop or dealership is doing it) And you MUST get caster camber plates. Maximum motorsports will be your safest bet.

Re: suspension..

Agree. The CC plates/springs/struts all work together as 1 unit.

You can run your stock shocks/struts, but you have to unhook the struts to replace the springs so it is easy to replace them when you replace the springs.

CC plates will allow you to align the car back to spec (you may not be able to when the car is lowered) plus it will allow you greater adjustment if you want to go road racing/autocrossing. And, since you have the struts off the car (to replace the springs), it is a good time to install the CC plates.

Tokico makes a nice adj. shock/strut kit as well. It is their D-spec kit.

I run the Tokico D-spec/Eibach/MM CC-plates on my 08 car.

Re: suspension..

I'd tell you my setup, but it's a bit on the stiff side.
