well, i has TEMS and i got rid of it. replaced them with bilsiens. then again my cars an 87 with 150,000 on the stock shocks. i have suspention techniques and i love my combonation. I dont think it would be wise to replace the springs without doing the shocks too. these springs would beat the hell out of my stock shocks, even on the strongest setting. so in a word, no. thats in my Non-Humble opinion.

I would not buyt lowering springs and not get struts as well. The need will come fast for new struts and you will do the same work 2x's.

TEMS,stock struts, and HR springs are bouncy... But my friends supra runs fine.

But it would be nice to just kill 2 birds with 1 stone

I am running new stock TEMS struts and STs and love the ride. It feels very close to stock. That said, I do not use the softest setting because there isn't enough dampening when you're sitting that low.

H&R's and factory tokico's replaced not too long ago, no TEMS. car used to hold up really well for awhile, but i think the front struts are starting to go... im getting Koni's whenever they blow.

for the time ive run with the H&R's, Tokico Struts and ST Sway bars, its been a bit of a rough ride unless its city or highway, i guess our backroads arent the greatest either..

ive just gotten used to the rough ride, i dont think upgrading struts will help alot. im sure it will a bit, but im not complaining aslong as the pavement is smooth and it still corners far better than stock. :cool:
