Default Shocks or PHB?

I have had my SS lowered for a few years now with no other suspension mods as of yet. I want to get an adj phb to recenter the rear end, but I don't know if I should save up more and get new shocks first, probably revalved Bilstein's. What do yall think? Thanks.

Dude, SHOCKS!!!

Getting the revalved Bilstein's will make a WORLD of difference, you'll think you are in a different car TRUE STORY!!!

Getting an adjustable PHB is something you can get later, you'll FEEL the difference with the new shocks.

go with shocks, will make a world of a difference. PHR is necessary though, but they can be had at a quarter of the price of new shocks.

both are good in there own way so best off getting both, since your lowered, i would recommend lca relocation brackets. that and the adj PHR are the top needed mods for lowered cars.

Shocks first. If you're not rubbing, the adjustable phr can wait until you get shocks.
