Always a good idea when going to a different spring. The oem shocks aren't really meant to dampen lower springs. Even with replacing the shocks you will find an improvement in ride quality. I am biased of course, but before you choose the eibachs take a look at all the reviews on the SWIFT spec-r springs.
