They are priced individually. The GAJ shocks and Bilstein struts are bolt-in replacements. You shouldn't need new springs or have to modify anything.

They really are not to much stiffer, they just work better.
The ones Cindy sells are for everyday driving, nothing
like Koni's, but good daily driver struts.

I'm not sure about the Bilstein struts. I asked many months ago and got no real response so I decided to go with KYBs. I've 'heard' that KYB GR2s are supposedly 15% stiffer than stock, but they seem like OEM replacments to me really. I'm actually thinking about buying new struts again because the KYB GR2 struts do not go together well with the Eibach ProKit springs my car also has. If I knew Bilsteins could handle the higher Eibach spring rates, I would buy them. I'll probably go with the Konis though.....I mean, who isn't satisfied with Konis???

In my experience , the Bilsteins perform marginally better , and the GR2s last a little longer .

seems like the gas-ajust shocks and the bilstiens are what im looking for..so anyone got any:D

also my suspension sounds like old rubbing rubber/kinda like springs all around. My question is, how would i know if its my springs or struts or shocks that are making the noise?..i dont want to end up getting stiff/hard springs that could distroy the new struts if i dont need to.

also when swapping in the new stuff would i need to swap out the covers and spring rubbers?

im guessing there is really no way to see if the covers and spring rubbers are bad unless i take it apart?

would the KYB front spirng rubbers and covers that fwdperformance.com work with the bilstiens?
