H&R race springs

Im riding on H&R race springs right now with my stock shocks. as you can guess my shocks are blown. im bouncing all over the road if i even touch a bump on the road. what would be good shocks to pair with these so i could cut that out? im not looking to spend $500 on shocks. if thats my only choice ill just go back to stock. please help me out cuz i don't want to go back 4x4. thanks in advance

You should check out Tokico blue HP shocks. Should be about $250-350 brand new for set depending on where you get it (2 front, 2 rear). Performs better OEM shocks and you can't beat that price and quality. Gluck.

Nahh. With H&R Race, Tokico Illuminas would be a lot better than just the HP's. They are more aggressive and adjustable. You will be able to find a "happy zone" for how you like the damper adjustment to ride.

Illuminas are in the low 400's new, I believe.

i just had the H&R race springs installed yesterday and i'm bouncing all over too, i think i'm going with the tokico hp or the eibach pro damper kit. They are both about the same price, any suggestions?

Why need adjustable shocks when blue shocks are already good as is? I don't know, I don't think additional $100-150 is necessary. You can always add a bit more and go with adjustable coilovers if your budget is not an issue.

I have the Illuminas/H&R race and they really do make a difference when you can adjust the settings, which takes about 2 minutes to do all 4. On hard setting my wife won't ride in the car and on soft setting she doesn't mind it so much. It allows you to quickly change how the car rides/handles. I would recommend them just because everyone likes a slightly different ride quality and the HP blue's you are stuck, like it or not.
