FIRST OF ALL, TURN OFF THE DAMN CAPS LOCK!

Second, if you are that concerned with it, you should probably put your stock equipment back on.

Third, because you probably won't take the good advice I gave you in the previous statement, I highly suggest you not being lazy as shit and researching what the spring rates are for the different brands. Also, you are on OEM shocks/struts, so unless you upgrade to something that is designed to work with lowering springs, then you are most likely still going to have less than ideal ride quality.

Last but not least, DO NOT buy something with adjustable dampening! I would be willing to bet that you have absolutely NO CLUE how you would properly set them for that vehicle. If you did, you wouldn't be on VaD asking retarted questions...

Second, learn that "dampening" is not correct. You are not lightly moistening your suspension components.

This is one of my pet peeves.

Damping.

Not dampening.

Damn, I didn't realize I typed that incorrectly. Should have looked over it before I posted.

It wasn't aimed at you, I was just following your "first, second" format.
