Which shock/struts should I buy?

Hey guys, I haven't been on in a while, forgive me if I'm out of the loop. I just haven't been reading about our cars in a very long time but I wanted some feedback from you all about which shocks/struts you think would work best with Eibach Sportline springs.

It's a dd so I don't want to drop a bunch of money on coilovers and I don't want it slammed for the same reason. I already went that route and my oil pan still hates me for it. I currently have Tokiko Illumina but they're blown. I bought them like that so I don't know how they would have performed new. Any advice?

Thanks fellas!

Whatever strut you go with, I would make sure it's adjustable (Koni yellows, etc) since your springs give the same drop at front and rear.

Eibach's struts are actually very affordable. But they aren't adjustable. Oh well, I've had these Illuminas on my car now for like 2 years and haven't adjusted them once lol. I think I'm going to do the all Eibach setup...

- Eibach Sportline springs
- Eibach Proline shocks/struts
- Eibach F&R sway bars 23mm front and 27mm rear

I can't wait!

Bilstein sports...

They are so epic and will last a long time. Great thing is you can have them rebuilt. Same with Koni.

^ No they state on the site that they're made to work well with either the Sportlines or Prokit setups.
