I have an EB, and I lowered it using springs from ebay.New shocks are cheaper when you buy through somebody's account at Bursons.

it's not some thing you really want to be cheap about.

you have to drive the end result every day. you'd be better saving more money and getting a set of shocks matched to your springs.
or you'll end up with a car that bounces over every bump and the rest of the way down the road.

a good set of shocks will last alot longer too

i've used bilsteins at $450 a pair but they'll last longer can be rebuilt and have the rates changed. and give an awsome ride
