I'm just wondering if I should change my struts if I'm getting a lowering kit or can I just leave the originals? WIll my ride be crap if I don't get new ones? Or should I get coilovers and get new struts anyways?

BTW I'm new at this so bare with me!!

You can chop the stock springs but that generally leads to death...therefore bad. buy some lowering springs. as long as you have the GT with the performance suspension stock you will have no problems with lowering springs.

Do not cut your springs!

I have the H&R springs, my car is low, ride is fine and the handling is a lot better than stock. No probs with the stock struts.

lol noo im not gonna cut the springs! alright well i guess its hit or miss with.. ill probably get the springs and not the struts and if i do have to replace them then i guess i will eventually

alright another thing... i was looking on ebay for the springs but most of them say for the v6 only, will they still fit on the 4cyl?

I have Espelir springs (got them from r100s, pm him if you're interested) and they are a mild drop (1.3") and I've had them on my stock struts for 2 yrs with no problems.

My struts have just under 60k on them and my springs have been on for around 15-20k just guessing.
