Lowering question..

I'm asking experts.. I've searched other threads..

But Any lowering spring kits ok with oem non sport shocks? I'm buying new sachs shocks and was just wondering if I could use the h&r kit or something else... I get really good discount on the Sachs and I don't have the $ for bilstein that's why I'm asking..

No.You should use sport shocks at least.Spring rates and such.You will bottom out non-sport shocks thereby shortening their lifespan.

I would use the shocks that match the h&r spring like cup kit or Koni yellow/ Koni red. OEM shocks are not for this purpose. GL
