There anybody put lowering spring on aftermarket monroe strut?

If I do that, did the struts lifetime will be reduce and blow after couple of month?

I got struts from advance auto, I think they were monroe.. Put my eibachs on them and the rear struts were shot after a year.

Did you modify your knuckles to fit the 1gn struts?

it`s a very smooth driving

but, you have to put some bumps stops, because the tire can touch de chasis

I bought monroe sensa tracs at advance, replaced them 3 times under warranty, and got tired of it. Eventually you will get tired of the shitty ride and bottoming out so frequently.
