    I lowered my v 1" using Eibach springs from "Juiced Hybrid" in Redwood City, CA.

    Now both rear shocks are leaking. Is there a fit with a special shock? Or should I use shims or ;over mount adjustments to raise the car say, 1/2"?

    If I just get replacement KYB from Tire Rack they will likely leak in another 47,000 miles. Aaaarrrggghhh!

    With the car lowered, do the shocks/struts bottom on full travel? Are there snubbers on the shocks/struts?
