Default Mixed brand Shocks & Struts?

Currently have Eibach pro kit springs and steeda panhard bar and steeda LCA's

Looking to add an adjustable rear UCA, and Steeda bump steer / ball joint kit


I know Bilstein (monotube) is a good brand for shocks and struts from American Muscle, however I kind of wanted something adjustable in the back (QA1) (Twin tube)...
Also going to add the GT500 strut mounts whatever I pick

The car is not a daily driver and the ultimate goal is to hook n book when I drive it... but still want a decent ride quality

Can you mix up shocks / struts ? Say Bilstein monotube struts and twintube qa1 shocks ??

Thanks

Hey 06,

You should not have a problem mixing shocks and struts as long as the pair matches side to side.

A weekend warrior having a different strut then shock should not be a problem just make sure you get it aligned properly!

How much power is your 3V putting down?

It is aligned properly right now. After the Pro kit install I also added those camber bolts. It is JUST in spec... I figured those GT500 mounts would either help or replace those camber bolts....
Not quite sure how much power to be honest with you.

JLT intake / brenspeed tune
3.73's
steeda UDP
BBK shortys
BBK twin62 Tbody
decent set of hankook tires
