Anyone pair up lowering springs and the KYB G2/Excel G shocks and struts run into any problems after long term use, or have the KYBs held up well?
There is a Eibach Pro-Kit and KYB 15k mile update here and it seems to be all good:
But wondering if there are any more long term updates.
I've decided to go with Eibach g35 Pro-Kit springs for my 2006 6MT coupe.
The car has 73.5k miles on the original struts and shocks.
My speed shop advised me to go with springs alone for the time being to see how I like it and to consider making a move to coils once I've spent the oem struts/shocks.
It sounded good to me as I want to limit expenses for the time being.
However, another option is upgrade the OEM shocks and struts now and get all of the labor done at once. If I went this route, I would want something cheap, like KYB Excel-G - or else it doesn't really save money over the BC coilover route. Eibachs and KYBs are still a $500 savings over the BC coilovers.
