Default Eibach Pro & Monroe

What's up everyone?

So I need to change my suspension ASAP. Car sounds horrible going over bumps and feel every little thing inside the car.

So I have done my research here on the forum which is awesome by the way.
Anyways, I am thinking about getting the Monroe shocks/struts and the Eibach Pro springs.

I want more of a smoother ride. Not ruff and stiff. I would appreciate your input if you think I will be getting what I am looking for.

Thanks everyone.

I had the Eibachs and didnt like them. They felt stiff. I was getting all kinds of weird noises from them too. I switched to Progress and that all went away.

If your buying all new struts and springs add a couple hundred more and get TEIN SS coilovers! Guaranteed smooth. Thats just my opinion. GL.

I was averaging 200 a strut/shock x 4 and about 2-300 for the springs. These are average prices in Hawaii. I think the TEIN SS coilovers go for about 13-1500. IMO, well worth it.

The progress aren't to stiff?

The only reason I was considering the Eibach was because my friend had them in his altima and it rode nice.

are you saying 200 for all 4? That seems like a generic or it would not last. I definitely wouldn't want to do the labor another 5-6 months later. Yeah I'm shooting on the high side of prices and getting parts out here is a lot more pricey!

That's just wrong. You are part of the United States and shouldn't be treated as another country.

$200 for all 4 is a good price and not a cheap part. it is for KYB GR-2s which are OEM replacement.
