Alright I plan on lowering my car in the next month or two.
I have stock struts with about 35000 miles on them.
How long do you think they will last before I have to replace the Struts with KYB's or should i just save up a little more and get KYB's....
Thanks

All i know is that dropping the tib would be the best thing you ever do to your car..it just changes the whole appearance.

- I need some springs too aha.

hahaha, springs, I'm never messing with springs again, lmfao. anyways, yeah, you're better off getting the new struts with the springs. you'll get back a brand new from factory new car ride.

if i remember correctly, remove all the bolts that you need to remove for the strut for that to come completely off, have something underneath the rotor for support, then loosen the top bolt for the strut. raise the car off of its support and youre done!

damn magicians hazzzzz and his cousin are, lmfao.

Yeah that's right alex love the way ur car came out
its really all thanks to you guys. im lovin the shlt out of it man, the ride feels soo much better, and i got the alignment and wheels balanced, feels better than it did stock!

i still havent seen your car, i sure would like to, haha.
i've been too lazy, but hopefully i'll be able to get some pictures in today!

My 07SE rides WAY better than stock. I got drop zone springs. They didn't fall the full 2" though. more like 1.5-1.75 not sure, haven't busted out the tape.

With the dampening of the 07 struts, I don't believe they will blow out.

get the KYB if you can afford it now or just wait a bit it's worth it .
