what shocks/struts to get?
my question is i have the Eibach Sportline Kit - 2'' Drop and i think my stock shocks are wearing out, they are very bouncy on the freeway, espically over a cement bridge or overpass i feel like im on a rollercoaster...

...which shocks/struts would be best for me to get to make my ride, ride as best as possible?

actually i found a place i can get a set, TRD Sport Struts and TRD lowering spring set for $579

...mabey i should get those and just not use the springs it comes with since mine is lower than the 1" TRD springs it comes with... mabey sell them real cheap here...

anyways is $579 a good price for the TRD strut set? ...cuz i dont really have the 2k for coilovers right now frown
