only reason why they give me bad vibes is because there are so many mixed reviews about them. i've read they are too stiff for normal driving and too soft for autocrossing. i read that it wont take long before your stock shocks give up from them being so short. i've read that they are great and i've read that they work well with koni yellow's. i read more stuff about the pro-kit and people are always satisfied with the way the car looks and handles. I'd rather have something everyone likes then only 50% of people like. but it's your car, it's entirely up to you

Hmm hope my shocks don't give out lol car has 60 thousand and I'm guessing the shocks are original I've had the springs in for about 7thousand miles and still a nice ride hope it stays that way. I want new shocks any way they say koni yellow are good with thes sportlines?

Yeah the problem with any lowering springs is obviously it's out of the shocks/struts operational range.
