Anybody running S-Techs + Tokico Blues?
I plan to get this setup soon. Seems like its the best deal on a budget. I can get the springs for about $100 and shocks for maybe $250-300. So for $400-500, hoping to have it all installed.

Who is running with this setup, and any complaints?

Should I shell out more for Koni + Eibach Sportlines instead? I know the car would be lower, but might be too harsh/stiff a ride?

Wow, thats fast, but at least you can save money for 6 months and get the new shocks!

When can i start noticing that my shocks are dead?

when you start bouncing uncontrollably and your ride just becomes very very rough...

every little bump i hit now feels like the biggest hole in the road... i get the biggest jolt when i hit such small things now!
