    Default GXP suspension

    So the ride in the GXP has been getting increasingly bouncy making me think its nearly time for new Struts/shocks. The issue is that Bilstein no longer makes them. Is there a stock level/quality replacement or am I stuck either down grading the quality or trying to red neck a coil over setup together ?

    Thank you! I had been told they no longer made them but these look correct. I am curious though how the story of them not being made any longer came about.

    It wouldn't surprise me if they are no longer made, which would justify the exorbitant price being charged for them.

    Is there a specific lowering springs for the GXP's or just use the same ones for the 07-03's? Would I still need to use the pogo washer's? Thanks.

    SSC/Canuck motorsports have 97-03, 04-08 and specific GXP springs
    Check out there website. The GXP springs have the greatest drop.
    Washers for the front, dont worry about the back. I just took mine out and put the originals in last weekend.

    Ok, thanks. Yeah, I checked the Canuck motorsports website and for the GXP springs it was a group buy... at least 10 sets. Thanks for the information.
