As kaydenver pointed out, you're better off with the spring replacement (as Koni and Bilstein use). They use the stock spring location, and are very easily adjustable. I have the Koni/TC Kline version of those.

I've also seen cheap one piece struts with spring built in, that you remove your existing spring, and use the spring integrated with the shock. I'm not a fan of those, since it puts extra stress on the rear upper shock mounts, which is already stressed, and a location that it's already a great idea to have reinforcements on.

If you don't need rear shocks, then just get the adjustable spring perchs, along with springs, just like kaydenver posted. It will be cheaper than new shocks/springs, and you'll have a couple inches of adjustment.

I have these adjusters along with racing springs. You could get 400lb springs and have a decent ride and have lowering capability.

Hi all

Is anyone on here using rear integrated coilovers? I note the Turner Motorsport website says fully integrated rears (as opposed to separate springs and shocks) require reinforced rear shock towers and a full cage.

Seems like separate shocks/springs on the rear is the way to go for a street/track/autocross setup?
