New Shocks with Tein S-Techs?
Heya folks. Well, I had intentions of order a shitload of stuff over my spring break if the turbo wouldn't happen, but it looks like I'll have to wait a while to see if it'll go through. But this week won't be a total bust, so I'm gonna buy something. I'd like to buy some Tein S-Techs (1.4 drop front/rear). I know I should get shocks (KYB AGX is what I'd go with), but I don't want to drop 400 on shocks in addition to the springs right now (gonna buy a little at a time). My car, although it's a 2001, has only 15,750 or so miles. So, will I be able to get the springs now and get the shocks in a month or two without my shocks going to badly?

you should be able to go around a year on stock shocks. but you can save yourself money (install) and time by doing them both at once. I have teins w/kyb gr2's. works great.

Cool, thanks for the input, guys. I may end up ordering the shocks before I get the springs put on, just waiting to hear back from C2 about something.
