For one, those shocks suck. Used versions of them from Canada aren't going to make your argument for recourse any stronger. I would stay FAR away.

Assuming you did buy them, you will also need a camber kit for the front and rear so that your tires don't wear unevenly.

Before you go modifying your suspension with used parts, what else on your car needs to be fixed? Do any of the other suspension components need replacing from a maintenance standpoint?

Moved to Off Topic. Normally a thread with a title such as this would be deleted, but Jarrett's advice needs to be read.

I agree. Those shocks are terrible, and being used, they're probably blown already.
In addition to QUALITY springs and shocks (those springs are good), you'll want to get a quality camber kit (SPC or Ingalls... no cheap stuff... you don't want that breaking on you.) fresh bushings all around, new ball joints all around, and of course a proper alignment.
You should also be sure your brakes and tires are in good condition. If they are not, replace them.

People think their suspension is a cheap way to start modifying their car. It's not.

kvssidy,

Here is a great compilation of suspension setups made by another site member, most being far superior to the used examples you found on Ebay.

The list is not exhaustive, but it is a good idea to go with a set that are well trusted and proven durable by many others.
