Hi guys,
I'm thinking about lowering my c-max using eibach springs with my stock shocks. I've read various reports about this, some say it works fine, others say it'll destroy the shocks. Has anyone done this on their c-max? Does it work ok?

Thanks in advance!

If the drop you are after is small then shocks should be fine but normally once up to 40-50mm best to fit matched shocks, the other way to look at it is, if you do get a problem with shocks later down the road replace shocks then.
