New shocks or OEM?

I bought some Tein Stech springs for my 05, should I install them over the OEM shocks, or buy new ones. Car has 967 mls on it. Would there be any differance?
I have 225/35/18's. Anybody with that combo? Thanks!

if the drop is more than 1 inch then you should replace them

KYB AGX. a lot of people use the combination of KYB AGX with the Tein S.Techs.

theres a seller on ebay, Kuruma Motoring, who sells a bunch of stuff for a great price. thumbsup

Verano bought some stuff, i think it was the KYBs and Teins from him, and he had no problems with the transaction thumbsup


Cliff Notes: get KYB AGXs thumbsup

i had my tein s-tech springs running with my OEM shocks for about 10,000 miles then i had to get some new shocks (tokico HP) but thats also because im at around 45000 miles right now... you should be alright with ur OEM shocks for a while but honestly i think new shocks have been my best mod yet!

u also save around $100 with install charges if you get them both installed at the same time
