I just recently bought a 2012 with 5500 miles on it since i got it i put about 100 - 150 miles on it. I was wanting to lower my 12 SE Hatchback, Sports package.

Sorry if this sounds strange, But i was just woundering. Did you use your stock shocks? And if so what kind of mileage do you got on your car now? I alway`s heard that its a bad idea to lower a car on stock strut`s is why i ask.

If you did use your stock strut`s. Do you think the 5000+ miles on my car would be ok? or am i going to have to replace the strut`s before i lower? 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.

P.S.
Your car looks nice, Mine is going in for tint on monday. Hopeing on ordering the exhaust and aem cai this week also
