Exactly what those guys said. No need to cheap on on something like this. It's like adding a twin turbo kit and running 20lbs of boost. Sure. It may not
Blow your engine the first pull. But eventually it'll **** up. So why not do it the right way the first time and go built? No reason to have more downtime in the future because you blow a strut or shock. Change them. I haven't changed my struts and shocks yet because my car is about to be up for the winter and I'm buying them in a
Month of so along with my supercharger. I've only been lowered for like 2000 miles but everything else is done except new struts shocks. I have
Lcas
Adjustable uca
Cc bolts.
Adjustable phb
1.5 eibach pro kit
What is the best shocks and struts to buy? I won't be drag racing the car at a track nor will I be on rock courses. I just like spirited driving and a well handling car? So any suggestions to you people that are knowledgable?

Because if someone is asking if they "really" need shocks/struts/phb/cc plates, it means they either don't have the money or don't want to spend more than just springs. So if XYZ company says "no you need all this extra stuff" they're not going to sell that person anything. If they say "you'll be fine with just springs", then that's what that person wants to hear and that person will be spending with them.

Also guys, keep it civil. Insults and bashing will get the thread closed. I've tried to lay out why its a bad idea to do just springs but not my ride.

I see cars trampolining around on their stock shocks all the time with over 100k. They seem to be getting to work just fine.

Does that mean, "yes you need" or "no you don't need"?

Is this one of those faddish things, cause I hear people do it all the time, starting responses with, "No, yeah.." or, "Yeah, no.." Does that mean Yes or No?

Never thought ab that as well, makes sense. Good to know.

Once I was done it dawned on me there was still mayonnaise in the pores of the bread, and I kinda wanted ciabatta anyway. I threw away the sandwich and started over.
