Shocks / Struts

Purpose

Why do you need special ones for lowering springs
When you install lowering springs on your car, they are stiffer than stock-speck ones.  This means that they are tougher to compress, and once compressed they rebound with more force than a stock spring.  A stock-spec shock will not be damaged by being compressed more due to a shorter spring; what will wear them out quicker is the faster rebound caused by lowering springs.  You can get away with using stock shocks with lowering springs, but the shocks will wear out rather quickly.
