how many miles on the originals? chances are theyll be fine. first i would try just springs, and if that doesnt float your boat, then upgrade.

with only 16000 miles on them, you wont have any issues with them if you throw some springs in. itll be like a whole new car!;)

I would change the shocks and struts if I was changing the springs. They are all designed to work together.

Shorter springs need stiffer shocks/struts with less travel.

what do u mean less travel? the only reason i want going to change the shocks, is beacuse reading other postings lead me to belive that no one did and had no probs.

i think what he means is, that it WOULD work better if you were to do the whole shabang. however, it comes down to how much you want to spend, and what you want out of the car. itll work just fine by doing just the springs, but it would be even better with shock/strut replacement. it up to you really.

Yup. If its just looks your going for, then you could just change the springs.

If you want looks and handling, change the springs and struts/shocks.
