Do our cars have struts on all 4?

Hey guys, I have a 2005 cobalt ss/sc and I was just wondering; do we have struts on all 4? Or struts in the front and shocks in the back? Because I'm looking to get the FE5, cobalt ss/tc strut and shock package from crate engine depot, and put lowering springs, but I'm not sure if you can put lowering springs on just shocks. Sorry if I sound like a noob haha, I haven't been in the cobalt scene for too long.

Hmm interesting, thanks a lot guys, I'll be getting the ss/tc shocks and struts from ced soon, I hear they're must better than our shocks and struts. Any idea on what kind of lowering springs I should get? I don't want it to be too low, I already scrape my front lip sometimes when I enter my driveway haha.

Pedders or yyz(whatever its called) v2 both i think are sold on ced as well. v1 dont drop much of anything so they made a v2 that still offered performance but with a lil drop so the car dont look like its gonna do some 4x4 mud bogging.

SSC's are pretty good for what they are. i had them before my YYZ V2's. cars sits nice, but it was just too low for what i want to do with my car. it was a much more comfortable ride than with my Sportlines
