dirtbiker348 Here's a very late update on these struts and shocks. They're g awesome! It ended up taking about 6 months to receive from Germany which really sucked, but I have had them on for about a year now and I haven't noticed any difference since I installed them. The SVT never took bumps so well and handles a whole lot better than the crappy Eibach struts and shocks I used to have. I wouldn't recommend getting them straight from Germany, but I would order from tire rack and get the struts and Eibach springs together. I really like this set up for daily driving!

Confused, yeah I'd be to when you can't get a part. And just think if you had to replace 1 strut cause of acciendent or you say hit the curb or something.
Simply put:

The first links shown show 1 front strut
and 2nd link shows rear shocks.

I understand that rear can be used on either side.

My question is.. for the first link, which side is that strut for? or are both included for that price?


Edit** I am talking about the proamauto links

If anyone wants these i would call a Bilstein retailer unlike Tire Rack and give them the part number to special order bc it seems no one has them in stock.
>>>>There you go<<<< Something to say about popular brands that work, huh.

Heres the front left. I dont know why i cant find it on the other site nor why its over $200 on this site. I think I'm just gunna message Tire Rack and see what they can do.

And I decided I dont want to raise the car an inch with the svt kid I'd rather lower it lol. Eventually im gunna get H&R race springs so these struts will work nicely
A very popular setup is H&R race springs w/ Koni yellow's. Which T/R has.

elsolo Unless you are primarily concerned with having a lowered appearance, SVT shocks and springs all the way. With the money you saved, you can put on better front and rear swaybars. for under $600, the SVT kit and eibach swaybars F/R.

dirtbiker348 The shorter ones are for the front. The only reason I'm considering buying off that site is because i dont need the springs. Tire rack sells a kit with these struts and eibach springs http://www.tirerack.com/suspension/s...2&autoModClar=
