H&R race springs installed! Shocks and struts blown.... :-(

I'm just wondering if this is a good matchup I already have the springs on my car.... but the shock I used are completly trashed and I'm looking to invest into a new set. I'm hoping to make the ride more combfortable without having to buy new springs as well. The ride is so ridgid right now my wife is ready to strangle me


Any thoughts would be nice, as I'm ready to buy ASAP.



Thanks,
Syn

Konis are valved for a stock spring height. It will work for a while, but its going to wear them out a lot faster. You should look into having the Koni's revalved to work with that spring.

Is there a set of struts and shocks that I could get that are setup for these springs? I would like to get something with adjustable dampners, but if I can't find that all I want is something to soften the ride.

Take a look into Spax or Gaz. I think one of them are valved for a low ride height.
