Hotchkis...sooner or later you will need to replace your shock with aftermarket ones. YOu can isntall them with your stock shocks, but they will wear out pretty quick. Camber link helps, but i heard that you really dont need it. just get an alignment, and they should be able to get it back to stock specs, or around there.

im riding out with stock on teins with 1.5 drop. Seems that the shock are about to go soon. I can feel it getting a little softer as i drive it more. As for camber, kits are not needed unless you go lower than 1.5"

ive had the stock shocks in for about 5 months now. They are still pretty good, i think. I dont have lots of pot holes here and i dont push the car to its limits. I havent felt much of a change since i put the springs in. Im guessing they are good for a while (maybe another 30k?), at least until i get enough $ for new shocks. The shocks had about 34k mi and now they have 36k on them. Yea i dont drive a lot considering i live right near the school.
