I was wondering when exactly you should change shocks? I'm way way over the mileage recommendation for changing shocks but my ride is still fairly stiff. I don't have any leakages on the strut bodies and I don't hear any awkward noises.

Basically I'm considering putting Eibach lowing springs on my car... but I don't want to take things apart to put the springs on and then a short while later have to change the shocks as well.

So what should I be looking for? If the car rides fine... should I just leave them alone and leave the extra money in my pocket?

Crester,

Buy my koni yellow/Eibach Prokit set up.

SUPER reliable. Lifetime warranty. Super streetable (also in winter).

You don't want to be running on JUST eibach's. You will destroy your dampers and within a summer have to replace them. And upon replacing them with OEM dampers, you'll have to replace them again within a year. Koni's are valved to handle the eibach drop.
