Can someone please clear up some basics of suspension components for me? I already searched on howtuffworks.com and there was nothing there. I already understand that our WRX's have struts and springs. Here's my questions
1) I noticed Tire Rack sells aftermarket shocks for our cars. Would these replace the struts? If so, what advantage (if any) do they offer over struts (or what exactly is the difference between struts and shocks).
2) What are coil over spring sets? What I can infer is that they replace the strut/springs in our WRX's but you have the advantage of being able to adjust the ride height.
Any help would be great
