u should make that decision... are your shocks worn?? is it time to get new 1's... or did u just replace them... if they have under 25k miles on them.. then don't worry about shocks...

but anything over 30k u should replace them.. IMO

You might want to get sport springs.... race springs are rather stiff... all depends upon what you wish to do with the car once they are on there... If its a daily driver... I'd suggest the sport over the race.

Race doesnt always mean better product.

You really should get new shocks, such as Bilstien sports to go with those springs. If you replace with OEM they will not last very long and you will have problems with the car bottoming out.

I second Les's advice for sports.

But I motion to save your money up and get coilovers. There's no substitute.

Definitely. Springs and shocks work together to give you the ride. It's a package deal; they shouldn't be mismatched.
