im about to lower the rear of my car using king springs.
Sposed to be abotu a 30mm drop.
will this be ok with the stock shocks? or will i need shorter stroke shocks liek for the front when i lowered that to keep the springs captive.

if the springs are stiffer then stock, which they probably are, you will need stiffer shocks (then oem at least) or you will get a really bouncy ride.

They only get tighter the lower it goes...

i can get kyb and monroe for trade price.
but what i meant is will the springs be captive or do i need to get shorter shocks so they will remain captive?
Each spring is different depending on the rates. Some have alonger extended length than others. i don't know of anyone using King springs, so you'll have to just put them on and find out.
