will my car still see the street, sure why not. it will be fun!
I don't care how much it reduces the life. Shocks are cheap and easy to put on. I don't really drive the car a hole lot so its not a big deal.Stal, they put that on there so when they wear out from driving your car on the street you can't call them up and complain.
Street use will greatly reduce the efficiency of the shocks.
