I'm on stock shocks and strut's and the ride is rough but it isn't jaw shattering or uncomfortable. You have to relearn the way you drive. Try to avoid large bumps, steep driveways things like that. I am guessing the shocks and struts will wear prematurely.

I'm also on stock shocks & struts and wheels. I installed the Eibach Pro Kit a couple of weeks ago and the ride is a little stiff and the ride is not as smooth (but not much) as stock but overall the ride is GREAT!!!

The best thing is that the car looks 110% better!!!!!!!!:fing02::fing02:

Im rolling on the prokit with stock shocks and 22's. On smooth roads the ride is great. When you starting getting on ruff roads you can feel it more than stock. I was surprised that the overall ride is not bad at all. I did notice a little more bump steer on big bumps, but its not too bad.

It is a bit stiffer, handles slightly better, but overall i think you will be ok, since i put my 22's on i take it a bit easier anyway.

I say go for it, you should be fine.

I also put the pro kit on my car with 22s. I found the ride to be not so good. I am not all for swerving to miss every pot hole I see in the road. So, I switched back and went stock. Sure, it looks better, but I dont think its worth the ride.

Maybe VA roads are a little worse, but I couldnt deal with the hassle of missing every bump I saw in the road!

That's why I'm sticking with my stock wheels with the Eibach's. I just don't want to have to worry about bumps on the road and a rough ride.

Pro Kit

I just installed the pro kit on my 2006 AWD, and love the change. Yes ride does get a bit bumpier, but not at all what I expected. I think that staying with stock shocks & struts helped that " cushyness " but the steering is tons more positive and quick. I'm on 20's with Toyo Proxes 245/45 closest to the stock rollout, not problems with bottoming, yet, but being sure that I'm watching where I'm driving.
Do the change, you won't be disappointed.

Cheers
