Icon5 tein springs w/ stock struts?

is there any harmful affects from using tein s-tech springs with stock struts.
note:tein s-tech gives 1.5" drop front 1.3" drop rear

i went to a shop down the street from my house and the guy there told me he wouldnt install the springs on my car unless i got struts too and the only brand he said was good is eibach wtf?

Re: tein springs w/ stock struts?

Really nothing harmful about it, but I figure while you doing the job of changing the springs you might as well get some nice struts to pair with it, especially if you have never changed your struts before. You won't regret it either...you'll be dropping more money, but it's so worth the new ride of the car.

just get new shocks and be done with it. you won't regret it.

plus it'll just be a matter of time of how long it'll take to blow out your stock shocks with lowering springs. could be a week, could be years. its a gamble.
