And does anyone recommend a DCC compatible set of shocks/struts online anywhere with link to site? I’m having a hell of a time finding.

I think the Bilstein B16 and KW DDC V3 kits are about the only ones. Both are around $3k though. If you're not tracking your car, don't bother.

Yeah sorry. I’m just using it as a daily, no track no autocross. I’ve been told for the drop I’m looking to achieve(1”-1.3”) I don’t need to replace shocks and struts and then I hear I do. Was just trying to get your take on it. Copy strut bushings and bearings/camber kit. Gracias amigo.

I think Sean already covered it but if you have stock DCC just stick with those.

Let me know what parts you end up going with, I haven't even looked into it yet.

No, just do the strut bushings and bearings unless you're having issues with noises, tire wear or alignment.

Are you referring to the rubber mount at the top of the strut when you say "bushings"? Sorry if that was already covered somewhere.

Yes, and between that and the spring, there's a bearing.

Right. I'm familiar with the bearing it was just when I hear "bushing" I usually think of like control arm bushings. I consider the top of the strut more of an "upper mount". I'm on the same page now though, so thanks!

Yeah, I’ve seen the parts in “how to” videos, but when you hear the terms bearing and bushing, my mind has a different visual of what they actually look like.
