    Default Get new struts and shocks or leave

    Looking to lowered my g8 gxp and was curious which spring would work far as strut/shocks or leave it stock. Car has 35k miles

    1. Eibach lowering springs (Which shock and strut)

    2. H&R lowering springs (Which shock and strut)

    What is your setup?

    Not a GXP just a GT but I have Tein springs and PPV struts. It is pretty comfortable and handles well. Looks good too. Before someone cries about the PPV struts let me point out this is my little librarian looking wife's daily driver. She has zero complaints.

    I put on the Eibach Pro Kit, PPV struts and Whiteline mounts and it is a very nice ride even on uneven PA roads. Good handling upgrade, but not harsh at all.

    Lowering springs almost always have higher spring rates (lbs/inch of spring deflection) than stock. So with the crap roads up here in the NE, I didn’t dare lower my GT. So I stayed with the stock springs but did do PPVs dampers at 25k miles which nicely tied down the handling without being harsh (after break-in).

    King Springs in Australia is another option to look into. I'm lowered on their springs.
