Default RE: Is it necessary to add a set of shocks when lowering?

I also lowered mine using the Eibach pro springs, but I didn't replace the stock stuts/shocks due to the Tokico being on back order and I was overly anxious to drop the car. The big difference I notice after riding in a car with Eibach springs and Tokico shocks/struts vs. mine with just springs is the rebound improvement with the Tokico combo. My car tends to have a harder time in controlling the rebound after an impact/dip in the road, otherwise it isn't that bad. I will end up replacing my stock springs/struts in the near future.

Has anyone had a problem with a custom exhaust hitting the panhard when they lower the car? I have a set of Borla catbacks on and since I lowered the car I hear a slight clanging sound when I go over larger than average bumps. From the looks of it, the panhard brace is hitting the over axle pipe. Do I just need to adjust the catbacks to maximize the clearance? Are there any panhard brace replacements that help this? Am I just losing my mind?

Thanks a bunch guys. You definitely answered my questions. I guess i'll probably try it without the Shocks for a week or so and see how the ride it. I'm going to attempt this myself so the cost of paying someone twice wouldn't be an issue.
