    The only thing i recommend is getting the rear shock extension or you will get a little thud over bumps if you go faster but its not a bad thud and doesn't bug me enough to get them redone.
    The extension will not help with go over bump, it probably your damper is already at the end of their life. Did you notice any wet patch on the shaft or casing? Mine was gone in 25k, both side

    The tires are 215/70/15 and they didn't rub when stock and dont rub now.

    As for the lift yes the front is a slightly over 1" and the rear was well over 1"

    Your likely correct, they likely are near the end of their life but there were no leaks or residue on the shafts. from what everyone has mentioned previously the longer coils have a thud when not using them with KYB's or the shock extension since they are noticeably longer. it still rides fine just firmer.
