No, changed to Bilstein Sport along with the springs. Stock shocks aren't designed to go with shortened springs, you'd end up with an inch less travel available in the shock, with strong potential to bottom out on hard bumps.

Note that the Bilstein rear shocks allow you a choice of 5 locations for the lower spring spring retainer, so if you don't like the middle location (which is the setup that arrives in the box, you can move a simple curclip and move it up or down about 1/2" or 1" further (of course, this has to be donne with the spring compressed or removed, first.)
