Running different front and rear struts.

Is it okay to run different struts front and back?

For example

Tokico HP in the front with h&r springs and oem rear struts with h&r springs?

Thanks


Problem solved but restored for reference

The valving of tokico hp are a bit different than OEM, but they're not terribly far off, so the handling shouldn't be affected to much.

I would pass personally though, both springs and shocks are wear items with definite life spans and you never know how long these have been around. Save a bit longer and order a set of Progress CSII coilovers for $550 if you can..

Good call, I agree with not knowing how long the spring/struts have been used so I'm glad I didn't bite the bullet and shell out $160. At first I figured the price wasn't too much for the springs+strut, but now I would rather save for a proper set up like you recommended.
