Great product, but needs more refinement.
I had completely blown struts on all 4 corners so these made a noticeable difference. Overall they are great, and ride pretty good. I find it interesting though that the front struts are the legnth made for a lowered car, they’re a couple inches shorter than the stock struts, which is great. I have the eibach sportline lowering springs, but the rear shocks are actually slightly longer than the stock shocks. It seems like being 2” lower in the rear will put a lot of load on the rear shocks.
The other slight issue is the rear mounting point for the bracket that holds the brake line out of the way on the front struts, wasn’t threaded. On the factory struts, it is. Not a big deal, I threaded it, just wish it was already threaded. In addition to that, the sway bar mounting holes for both the passenger and driver front stuts way just barely too small. I have the factory sway bar end links, so I filed the holes out just a tad. Again just a slight inconvenience.
But they were a pretty decent price for sporty shocks and they work great, I recommend them, just have in mind the slight issues I ran into.
