Default Sport Struts?

I have recently replaced my springs with Tein H Tech lowering springs. I want to kill whats left of my strut and then replace the OEM with sport struts. The car is about 1.5" lower, and I do not want to ruin a perfectly good strut because the ride height was not appropriate. I am not looking to install coilovers at the time, I just want good ride height and performance.

Is there a question you are asking? It's not clear from your post.

I apologize. My question is if there are any good performance struts out there made for this ride height that do not cost a fortune?

Sure. Tokico blues are good performance struts for the money. I believe the TRD struts are rebadged Tokico blue shocks. I've heard KYB GR2s are decent in most applications as well, provided you don't lower too much.

Man, if I would of known you wanted H-techs I would of sold you my TRD struts with my H-techs that are already installed. I swapped out that old setup 3 years ago when I had my BC coilovers installed. My TRD/H-tech suspension has been sitting in a box sense then.

Well are you still looking to sell the TRD struts? I need some cheap struts, I dont think im going to have this setup for too long.
