RE: Springs only vs shocks and springs

I just switched to the HR springs, it took me the better part of a day and
it still needs an alignment job. It was done in my friend shop (I did it)
using a lift and complete air tools, still took from 10:00AM till 4:00 PM,
no lunch.....I don't think you will have any problem staying with the
original shocks, but make SURE that you get a NEW set of front strut bearing
and alignment plate (100-125$) a must....
Do not forget to have the car aligned.... if you need more details about the
operation let me know,
