Its been about a month since I replace my suspension, and I am very happy with the results. I didn't offer a review right away because there is a break in period where everything has to settle in.

When I first had them it was very stiff and especially over speed bumps. I can say now though its smoothed out and feel much like stock. There is a minimal performance gain, it handles like stock which is what I expected since I did an OEM replacement. It does handle better of course since my car has 88k miles on it. But this combination is pretty good. Stiff, controlled, doesn't give you a head ache over rough pavement. I need new tires soon, so its rougher than usual, but once I get some decent tires on there, should smooth out even better. Nothing wrong with this set up, and have no leaks or anything from a mild 1" drop from the springs. You can tell the shocks are a little bit compressed but I have not bottomed out or anything.

I recommend it for those on a budget for sure.

Kit cost me $500 + $250 install = $750 total, not bad at all.
