ok, obvious noob here. I have had my car for about 4 hours. I knew going in fron the test drive that it needed new shocks. However, after reading thru all of this, I wanted FRPP ones. I have an 09 2 door SE btw, off I go to FRPP's website and, nothing. I know the 06,07 will fit but they don't even sell them anymore it appears.

I found these... http://www.c-f-m.com/performancepart...m#.UzRbpvldXng

but I have no idea if it will work. What I would like to do, is replace everything new. Shocks, struts, springs, assembly pieces, all of it. Lower it a bit, nothing crazy, it's a daily driver. I am also not trying to blow close to $1000 on coilovers or Koni yellows.


Just looking for the best route to achieve this. Help please! lol

Got a nice weekend in front me to install.

Quick lesson for ya, haha...

The 00-05 Fronts are the same. The 06-11 Fronts are the same. The ONLY difference is strut diameter where it meets the Knuckle. You have the option of running the 00-05 Suspension with the purchase of the Omni Kit that Massive Speed System sells. The rear suspension setup is exactly the same from 00-11 with the exception of the Wagon.

did not know that (obviously..lol). SO just get the springs and shocks you mentioned and install away? I can do that. Do I need mounting hardware or will that transfer over from the 09? Id like to get all new if possible. Might as well if I'm going to have it all apart..lol (wife can only yell at me once, not twice.)

All the hardware you need will come with the kit I believe... But if not it will transfer over. If you want/need new bolts, you can get them at the hardware store.

Wrong on both accounts..... to a point.

The upper strut mounts MUST match the year designation of the springs or they won't fit. The upper spring diameter of the 08-09 springs is smaller than the 06-07 so the mounting hardware is different.
