Finally got my shocks in, couldn't have come at a better time also since I just discovered that my stock rear shocks gave out like a bunch of sissies. After I get new strut boots for the rear since they are torn, I wanna get install them along with my Eibachs before Spring semester starts on Jan. 9. We'll see about pics ;)

nice, you should try to see if you can get new strut mounts as well, then it'll really be an easy swap and everything will be new.

That's great.

I've had my struts for a while now, just got the rims today. I'm just waiting to get some money for the springs and then I'll do it all at once.

Though, I think I might put the rims on first. I can't wait to see how they look on the car, plus I'll want to get the springs even faster when I see the huge gap I'm going to have.

you can get the fronts for $60 each and the back ones for $50 each. It'll make the swap easier and it'll make your suspension upgrade complete. I'm sure cash is tight but last thing you would want to have to do 6months down the road would be to tear the suspension apart again to replace the mounts. Just a thought. Definitely let us know how it rides when you're done.

im not too worried about the mounts going out, they only got about 58k miles on them. i know alot of people that dont change them when they do suspension and have been fine for awhile. do people on this board even change them along with the struts?

I did mounts, boots struts and springs all at once, but my car also had 138000 miles on it when i made the swap- i would think youd be ok for a while
