Eibach strut failure

I have a 2007 ZX4 ST and I put in the eibach sportline springs and shocks last August and I'm pretty sure the front passenger strut is blown already. I live in Canada and don't drive it in the winter so in total I don't think I even got 10k miles out of them so I am not impressed with them at all.

Anybody else have bad experience with these struts? I'm wondering if I should replace just the 2 fronts as the rears seem ok still or just get a full matching set all around.

Looking for recommendations on what would be a good shock for the sportlines 2 inch drop? The springs are for the 00-05 struts, I'm wondering if I'm stuck with 00-05 struts or if I can use 06-07 with these springs if I wanted to?

The springs will not interchange between 00-05 and 06+

There are more strut options for 00-05 anyways.
You could just get the SVT struts and use your eibach springs. Those would be about the cheapest performance struts.
00-05 Koni, KYB, Bilstiens, etc will all work with your springs
