Coilovers

If I were to buy coilover kit like this, DO I need to buy new shocks or do these just go on the stock shocks?!!?

Dude THIS IS TRASH !!!!! DO NOT BUY THAT SHIT!!!!
I know all that shit like - 0-4" drop.. blah, blah, blah... lie.
IT'S LOOKS LIKE SHIT AND FEELS LIKE SHIT. Your car will jump and bump and...TRASH TRASH TRASH...

DO YOUR SELF A FAVOR - DO NOT BUY THAT TRASH!


YOU CAN NOT GET GOOD COIL OVERS FOR $60 ,NO FUCKING WAY!

You need a drop? Buy Brand name item .YOU CAN NOT HAVE A GOOD SUSPENTION FOR LESS. GOOD ITMES COST MONEY!!!!
P.S.And yes! most likely you will have to replace your shocks soon after having that trash on your current shocks.
P.P.S. And you can get that trash of www.E-Bay.com for$60. Or you can check www.Modacar.com and get a brand name item for a very good price.

thumbsdown dont get those dude...

they can go on the stock shocks but it might be a lil bouncy and will wear out your shocks a bit faster.
if you want a nice steady ride and got the $$ get the whole suspension kit..

You're still talking almost twice as much as struts/springs.
