So I've had my eibach lowering springs on my 16 wrx for about two months now and I blew my drivers rear shock. And now I just searched the internet and can't find any after market replacements for lowering springs????

did you mean replacement aftermarket shocks? OEM shocks are like $125 each, or you can buy someone's used suspension like i did. are both blown? was an impact gun used on the top nut? that's what did mine in. a couple weeks now and racecomp engineering bilsteins will be available, but that's all 4 not just (1?) rear

i am not aware of any fitment other than typical off the shelf coilovers, something high end and custom, or the bilsteins which aren't available yet.

EDIT: forgot the JDM bilsteins but I don't know if anyone recommends those

Only the one so far, OEM rear strut. Just ordered a new oem one if any of the rest blow I'm going back to stock ride height, until the aftermarket catches up!
