I have ordered the Eibach pro series Shock/strut set from AM. What im hoping to eliminate is the excessive rebound over certain higher speed road dip conditions. I do not want to lower the car, period.

Anything is better than the factory shocks that came on my 2011. I have Koni (orange) shocks. It removed most of the nose dive from braking and added just a little more firm ride.

Sure on an auto cross course they may be an improvement but inbthe real world the wallow and float and flat out suck ass. Add horsepower and it makes the car undriveable. On my 2011 5.0 magnuson car was flat out scary on the factory struts shocks.

You can do it. I did mine a couple of months ago. Purchased new struts and GT500 mounts. Rented a spring compressor from Auto Zone, and completed both sides in one afternoon. I also read the Haynes Repair Manual and watched videos on You Tube.
