well you could just get whatever you want, and let your shocks blow out, its just that you will have a very bump ride and you will risk damaging other things, but if you want to drop it and only have money for either springs or shocks, go with the shocks first, its not really gunna make a difference, so you might as well wait for both

Shocks dont lower your car.


To lower your car you need springs. To put afterarket sprigns with stock shocks is dangerous mainly because of the ridiuclous bouncing. Some people dont find it dangerous but i lok at it from a economical point of view. Honestly read what I posted in my previous post. Get a more conservative sport spring.

i know shocks dont lower the car, thats why i said IT WOULDNT MAKE A DIFFERENCE

to lower your car you need springs, no crap, but if you put lowering springs with aftermarket shocks it will blow your shocks because they are consantly compressed

ahh ok I got you. I'll look into all that. Until then, it's time to install my cosmos intake, Hfm and chip that are here. Thanks to Brett for burning me a chip for cheap, and getting my a brand new HFM for 160 dollars with the adapter.
