Installing GC coils on Stoc shocks

I went to the garage, they tried to sell me some new shocks, I told them I would in the future but for now I just want to get my coils installed. I did try to install them on my own but most of my bolts are rusted into spot, using WD40 didn't help all it made me do was strip them a little bit.

If I install my Ground Control coil overs on my stock shocks, at the garage they told me if I lower my coils lower then 1 inch my stock shocks will blow immediately. Is this true? If not, how low can I go without blowing my shocks, and how long do I have until they do blow?


TL;DR : If I install GC coils on stock shocks, will my shocks blow right away if I lower more then 1inch

Re: Installing GC coils on Stoc shocks

Doesn't matter how many inch drop on coilover sleeves because it will kill your shocks. Once you install it on your shocks, then it will lead to blown maybe within 3-6 months depend on your driving skill and road at your city.
