New Suspension

Hey all,


So my struts are going out on my 08 and I need to replace it all soon. I wanted to the FRPP kit but it looks like those are discontinued and I'm not sure if I'll find one. What kind of struts/springs can I get for around the $300-500 range?


Thanks

Eibach springs are way too soft for the drop, you'll bottom out over everrrrything. What struts are you doing? I have a decent knowledge of springs but not sure on the dampers aside from koni yellows which are too expensive

sportlines are the one's that will need dampers quick. pro kit is fine. if you want a good low with performance i'd go with the h&r sports. it brings the car a little lower than the eibachs.

Yeah my FRPP kit front struts are starting to wear out as I got them used. What all struts can be used with the FRPP springs?
I may just order those from tousley while they still have some
