    I have anticipated a cost of at least $120/strut and $100/shock, is that unrealistic? I do not go off-road, and as far as lift, I have not considered that. Thanks for your input!

    with your budget in mind you could easily do oem replacements which would provide the same if not a slightly improved ride. an upgrade to bilstein 5100's improves the ride further and allows for the addition of lift, without stretching your budget too far

    Thanks! I found Bilstein on Amazon for about $100 per strut but I did not see Bilstein shocks.

    Check out "Car_ID"...that's where I got my Bilstein Struts and Shocks...very competitive price...bought the front coil overs from "Parts Geek" Moog $53.20 a pair!
