When you replace the stock springs with harder springs, you have to replace the stock struts, so they can handle the extra force. The purpose of a strut is to absorb the spring's energy (so you aren't just bouncing on springs all day). These struts have five positions (for varying the stiffness). I noticed a bit of difference between the positions, but it was not as significant as I expected.


It's tough to just say my opinion on these (because I did the wheels, tires, springs, and struts at about the same time), but overall handling improved immensely! The car handled so well before, but the improvement was incredible.
