Yes. That makes it worse! I am not on the Facebook, so I didn't see them there. I just did the rear shocks with a set of Monroe's the other day. They seem to work well with the lowering springs, but I was seriously considering the Koni Str.t.

Anyway, good luck.

I have heard good things about the Monroe's with lowering springs and at $60 for a pair, I gave them a shot. They may not last as long as the Bilstein's or Koni's, but I actually like the way they feel. Firmer than the stock shocks, but not crashy. We shall see. Replacing them is simple, so if I don't like them I can always swap them out for something else.

How come your selling the konis? With such low miles?
Hey Dannoman, good question!

Bought them with some fronts and I've got Awd wagons so there's nowhere to use them.

Car was parted out to due engine issues if I recall correctly.

Still need to break down the front shocks to install them. I'll have 850R springs available then as well (fronts that is)

Thanks I certainly hope so! The paint on the pair I owned previously didn't last long but they still worked perfectly fine.
