I have s.techs right now on stock shocks, but I want it lower.

I was thinking of getting some eibach sportlines, because that drop looks really nice, but how long will they last on my stock shocks? I don't want to have a terrible ride.

if you go any lower than 1.5", its a good idea to upgrade the struts... if you want true improvement in handling (as well as proper control), getting the struts (ie: kyb agx, etc) is a good idea.

i dont think your shocks will last that long. the sportline drop is 1.8" front and 2.4 rear, which is a pretty low drop for stock shocks.
