I've changed the rear ones on my and it is crappy handeling ever since. I would stick to AAS. The other thing about AAS is that it helps out in cornering a great deal and when the turbo kicks in no matter what position the setting is in the system stiffens the shock to extra firm. Ever since i changed the the 2 rear struts my car handles like crap. Just something to keep in mind. One idea that was thrown at me at the time was putting in 2nd gen struts and springs all around which will lower yer front end 2" and rear 1". Hope this helped u out.
