I'm a stock kinda guy, I put about 30,000 a year on my 12 CO. Sooner or later ill have to replace, would prefer OEM
 
I keep my Boss all stock too but then again I currently only have 3k miles... quick question though, will the factory warranty be voided if we change shocks to another non-stock set? What if we change them to the set LS uses?

They're rebadged (to FR) and possibly re-valved Tokico Illuminas.
I've used the same shocks on some other vehicles and had good luck.
I'm actually planning on Steeda Ultralite springs and camber plates only as a first upgrade. I'll see if I want to move to something like a Koni yellow after a few track days, or if some different sway bars should take care of my needs.

If you use the Steeda Ultralite springs chances are you wont need the camber plates. It should put you with slight negative camber but such that would warrant plates....I have used them on my last two GT's and neither one of them was too far out of spec.

I assume you meant *wouldn't warrant plates - ?

I appreciate the info, however I will probably buy em anyway, in case I eventually swap to other shocks/springs/etc - It won't hurt ya know?
