Its oem and helped increase the ride quality without sacrificing ride height. Also is not too stiff or sloppy.

Improve the handling.
Once you’ve had a chance to use the product, did it meet your expectations?
For the price, they are great. It doesn't handle like its on rails but feels like a performance car from the 80's.
