Default GT shocks & struts

I was wondering of swapping the stock V6 shocks & struts to GT. Do you think one can feel a substantial improvement? Additionally, I would pair them with a set of Steeda sport springs...
Any advice would be most appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Don't waste time and money installing stock GT dampers. The stock GT dampers are lousy. Invest in a set of Koni SR.T's to go with your Steeda Springs. Excellent street combo.

If your stockers are leaking and you got the GT items for free then yes do install them. But if your buying them, dont bother. Stock dampers are not valved for lowering springs so they wont last anyway. Over time they will wear out prematurely.
