If you want just springs to achieve no wheel gap I can pretty much guarantee that you will never want to drive your car again. You will have such a high spring rate that you might as well put blocks...

Just got my new tires in last weekend. They are winter tires kind of right? For So Cal at least. There are a few perks living around here.

They are not that hard to replace. Any qualified person can swap out all 4 in 2-3 hours. It took me 3 hours to install my coils with a floor jack in my garage with never having done it before.

I really like the higher spring rates and think the ride is great. It is a bit firmer than stock but not bouncy or jarring at all. You notice it for sure if you hit a big pothole or speed bump but...

Never heard of them but I am sure they will be plenty strong to keep you wheels on being steel. Just don't be surprised if they are a rusted mess in a year.

Honestly your really don't need much at 30K. If it is time for an oil change do it. If you get high quality synthetic oil and filter you can easily go 1 year or 12K on a oil change. Go to walmart...

If you are going to change them do all 4. Car might handle a bit weird with 2 new shocks and 2 old shocks. With 66K mils on the car the dampening is probably not nearly as good as new shocks.

Give it a few hundred miles. Once you bed in your brake pads to the new rotors it should stop.

I ran through a few sets of stoptechs. Low to medium dust. No noise. Good all around performance for a daily driven call. All in all a very good pad.
