    Amazing Shocks

    I went through a couple different lowering springs and shock\strut combinations before I finally landed on Eibach Sportlines and QA1 Single Adjustable Struts/Shocks. The whole combination is amazing. I have less than a half inch of clearance between the tire and fender and the car still handles amazing with no scrapping or hitting the tires on the fenders.

    I had some very worn out rear shocks on my 98 cobra and wanted a shock that would take whatever suspension mods id throw at it.. car has h@r springs in it lowered about 2 inches all around the car would bottom out on a manhole cover.. I installed these shocks in about 30 mins with hand tools and a buddy. the best thing about these shocks is the adjustability hands down! I noticed right away how the car hooked even with street tires. EXTREMELY impressed and as usual they were shipped quickly! thanks guys

    Great Shocks!

    Bought these along with the front coil overs. Paired with the digital controller this is by far the best suspension system note market. The range of adjustability is great and within the matter of a push of a button you can have your car go from cruising like a Cadillac to cornering like an F1 car. Great product! Highly recommended!
