2014 vert with lowering springs. Shock?

I just lowered my vert in the garage. Stock springs to eibach pro. Haven't had it on the road yet. Live in NW Pa. Snow belt country. Anyway. Thoughts on shocks ? Will the factory do ok? The vert is/was a softer setup... Rear shocks vs struts ? One or the other? anybody have insight to share? I want it handle better

Stock are ok if you just wanna get by.. Replacements are ideal.

Why? Unless the drop is ridiculous, all you need is matching strut mounts, as most aftermarket struts want the 2010 style.

Factory struts and shocks are a a touch weak on stock springs...and I have a Brembo car. The vert stuff is even less likely to be ideal.

Yes if you don't plan to lower more than 1". Camber bolts or cc plates also if you are lower than this.

I like Eibach myself. Not expensive at all and have never had problems with them.
