Thats the set up i'm running now. The ride's rough and the shocks/struts have almost completely worn out within 3 months. But I plan on upgrading them in the spring so you'll be okay.

Here's my old car. Sportlines on GR-2's which are very similar to a stock strut.

Why do the job twice? I'd go for the Eibach sportline system= damper's & spring's! Do it once & be done w/ it! You don't want comeback's do you?

The Eibach sportline spring is a little to soft for stock dampners, even the Eibach pro dampners. IMO, run those springs but with a better quality dampner like Koni yellows.

AS far as running them as is until spring I don't see and issue with it. As far as doing it twice, it not that hard to do.
