Lowering springs on stock shocks

Any idea if the OEM sport suspension will able to handle Eibach or H&R lowering springs? I've been told by someone that my stock shocks won't last long. I'm just looking for a quick fix for the summer. Planning on getting the H&R coilover system next year. Just don't have the money right now.

If you have the sport suspension then the shocks will suffice. I've got the Eibachs on my vert, no issues.

Bullshit. Stock shocks/struts are tough, sport dampeners handle higher pressures and will keep the car from bouncing/dipping. I've been using regular boges for two years without issues.

Get sport shocks/struts when you have more money, or when those die.

Performance one step at a time.

nothing to worry about - they will wear out faster but not fast enough to notice :-)
