I coupled these springs with Bilstein Sport Shocks/Struts that are designed for the XI and meant specifically to work with lowering springs. I don't have any complaints and the handling is great compared to stock and this is even on run flat tires. I have zero rake and can post pics showing wheel gap later on.
lol, where the hell did you get that nonsense?? There are plenty of people who have gone 50k+ miles on lowering springs with stock shocks. The thought that springs blow out stock shocks is grossly overblown
