shocks and struts

So guys I could use some input on which shocks and struts I should buy. I have the steeda ultra lites, but I have been waiting to install them until I get the shocks and struts. I don't track my car, but I do want good handling with a lower stance obviously.

I don't know much about shocks & struts but I do know if you want to tighten up your handling you should upgrade your brace bars, control arms, sway bars, pan hard bar and... I'm forgetting something.... But yeah.

Re: shocks and struts

Yea I understand its good to upgrade all that stuff also but it is my understanding that if you lower your car you should upgrade your shocks and struts also. If it's really not necessary then I can use that money for something else.

You don't have to.. I added frpp k-springs and thats all.. Still rides better than my 04 GT did stock.. BUT I do plan on getting struts and shocks within the next year or so..
