HOTCHKIS springs need info please.

Teins are 1.5 drop all around
Hotchkis 1 3/8"front & 1 7/8" rear.

yes..you'll want to change your shocks anytime you do a drop over 1". i personally like the kyb agx shocks but any aftermarket performance shock will work.

you can probably get away with your stock shocks for about a year..but not much longer. of course this depends on how the roads are and how you drive as well..but the average length of time is about a year before the increased spring rate in the springs wears out th stock schocks

since your car is a 2001 you should get shocks and struts also. If it was a newer car you could go for a while without replacing them. check out

www.monkeywrenchracing.com they have the cheapest prices i have seen. Oh, and get the Hotchkis. they are more of a drop than the Teins also. both are about 1.5 in the front, but the hotchkis are almost a 2" drop in the rear.

i was going to get some new stock shock for cheap since i dont have the money for aftermarket shocks, so what combo should i go with.
stock shocks & TRD drop or stock shock & TEIN S TECH springs?

well i would like to but i dont want to change my shocks because money is really tight. so i need some springs that i can use my stock shocks, and i can get some tein's and some hotchkis for a good price but then i would need aftermarket shocks so i guess i'm down to TRD springs will it look good with 225/40/18 tires on a VS kit?
