I do understand you said it did make the bumps a little more noticable, But id o try to avoid potholes and stuff as much as i posible can. and if i do got to hit 1 i go slower over them.

Your car looks nice, Mine is going in for tint on monday. Hopeing on ordering the exhaust and aem cai this week also
I did use the stock struts. I have about 10k now with no issues. Still love the sportlines. The 5k on your struts will be perfectly fine. It won't make any difference. And with your current driving habits you will find the sportlines to ride very well. Go slow over speed bumps an your good to go.

Thanks for the compliments. I love how she looks. I recently had the front tint removed and lightened from 20% down to 40%. I like it better now.

Hope that helps.
