I am wanting to lower my 85 se with the eibach 1" drop springs. Can I keep the stock struts/shocks on it or do I need to get a modified shock/strut setup?

I don't have many miles on them and hate to just toss them.

No need to change the shocks and struts, they will be just fine.

I just did this... I used the Ebiach 1" and stayed with factory lengthed shocks. Im using the Monroe Sens-a-Track... Ride is really great!

Now... a cheap excuse for the pics!

GG4's new lowered stance and powder coated rims AND Bridgestone Pole Postion tires!

I was looking at ordering some Sensa-a-Track shocks today. This question is kind of unrelated, but do you know if you used part number 5921?

Ummm... that's cheating to squish the pictures down. Look at those wheels/tires, they're not even round anymore!

Oh, I'm not suggesting you did it on purpose, but those images are somewhat flattened. Not much, but enough to be noticeable. As I stated earlier, your wheels/tires aren't even round in the pictures.

Depending on what created the original images, there are square pixels and there are rectangular pixels. Somewhere along the way, your pixels got altered...

Compare your posted image with an undistored version of the same shot...

I thought the pricetag on Photoshop usually prevented monkeys from operating it?

I have a set of Eibachs sitting under my coffee table ready to go in, just waiting on my struts to come back from rebuilding. Glad to see based on your pics that it's going to give my car a nice even ride height, cheers!
