Hey y'all,

The 08 Sport I purchased was previously lowered. This would be fine if I lived in a more forgiving climate but Montana has a lot of rough roads and conditions. I have the original springs. Should I use struts that are currently on the vehicle or replace those as well? I don't want to spend $500 replacing the springs and then need the struts replaced in 30000 miles. Does anyone know where I can get the whole strut assembly already put together?

I dont think a already put together kit exists for 08s. I believe thats onlyi for ge8s and gk5s.

that said, it wouldnt be that hard to buy struts/shocks... and simply slap springs onto em yourself.

Monroe might make a Quick Strut for the front but KYB is the better strut and for the price the Tein kit is a bargain.
