Strut/Shock Recommendations

I posted in General Tech HERE, but wanted to invite the more serious handling fanatics to take a look, as well. I'd appreciate your help. Thanks.

After researching myself, i found Bilstein HD's to be the best choice for a street car. They offer the best ride quality (better than stock), and still perform amongst the best. They also last..

For a fun street car, go Bilstein for sure.. i did! Can't wait to try em out..

I'm sure you'll be happy with Bilsteins, but they might be slight overkill if you've still got (or are still keeping) your stock springs. That is, you could probably get away with less expensive dampers and still be happy. Now, if you're getting stiffer springs, then Bilsteins are definitely one of your best options.

I'm planning on using the Eibach Pro Kit, so I won't be going that much stiffer. I guess another question is, "can I get away with stiffer springs and still not rattle my teeth?"

I also favor the Bilsteins-they work great with FRPP C springs

Then the Bilsteins should be perfect for you.
