Recommended Posts

hey guys,

Ordered H&R springs , do i have to replace my shocks? looked around fro the cost of the shocks

and it's almost going to be same as buying coilovers,LOL

Anyone used HR without replacing their oem shocks, btw the car has 51K miles..

Or should I wait until i can afford new shocks :P

If you're not using their "Race" springs, you can get away without changing the shocks. Generally you should change both as a set as the harder spring rate could cause accelerated wear on the shocks. Bilstein's lowest range shocks will cost you around $1234.00 from Bilstein direct (www.bilstein.com), which isn't too bad for a set of performance shocks. The PSS9 is probably quite a bit more, but it's a complete kit. You should be able to get the Bilstein shocks aftermarket for a bit less.

If you're not using Race H&R springs, then I'd personally suggest putting them on now, but bugeting for new shocks in the very near future (3-6months, assuming your OE shocks are in good condition).

thanks Shash,

Yeah I only ordered the OE Sport springs , not the race..

We'll see what i could find, cheapest quote i got was Performance and OE shocks from Sunsetimports

theyre in the $900/set... but thinking about the labor rate also, i prob keep the originals for now...
