Probably $5-6k out the door, thats seems to be what most shops around here quoted me at.

I took the car up into the mountains last night to shake it down, literally, and the front end feels great with the new parts and tires. The rear end feels like dog ass, its lifting quite a bit under braking and causing the tires to lock/slow, and theres quite a bit of movement when im set into the corner and it undulates from bumps it steps out a little to easily. Im going to play around with some settings to see if i can get it to tighten up but i want new struts soon.

Im having the debate of coilover struts vs standard struts. I want the car to be more comfortable to daily, which makes me want to lean towards Tein EnduraPro struts with swift springs. But when i want to throw the car around the coilovers are where its at i cant make up my mind. If i go back to regular struts i lose my camber adjustment so id have to slot the rear bolt holes.

Why cant i have a car that does everything...

I got a deal on a set of Tein Flex struts, i think im going to run those with the swift springs i have for a while. I ordered the remainder of the EDFC kit too so ill have in-car damping adjustment

That's cool. I'll be curious how that goes since it seems like most people don't talk too much about them here.

The internet got a bad taste years ago from Tein for poor quality control (circa mid 2000s) but as of maybe 5-8 years ago everything they make is top notch. Twin tube struts are cheap to make, reliable and provide good street ride quality so they use them for a lot of their lineup. Everything is powder coated, threaded bodies are teflon coated, its all good shit. Everyone thinks the EDFC controller is a gimmick until they use it and its the best thing ever lol, ride soft and comfy on the highway then push a button to stiffen the valving up and rip through the woods.

Well, I wish I knew about the EnduraPro/Plus series a month or so ago. I *just* bought KYB AGXs and haven't even installed them yet and I'm already envious of that EDFC controller. Looking forward to a review.

^you wont be disappointed in the agx. i had them paired with four different spring combos, (eibach, intrax, swift super lows, stock) and they worked flawlessly, regardless of height.
