I currently have the H&R Super Sports right now and overall im in love with the look of the car but not the ride. If the shocks/struts are adj, does that mean if i go all the way up with them they will make my ride higher than the H&R's? or is this dependent on the springs you get with them? Im about to drive to WA state and i think these would be a good buy but not sure if i should go with a diff spring or save some money. If i were to go with a diff spring it would either be the eibach pro or steeda.

Basically i just want to know if upgrading my shocks/struts will do anything for the ride height of my current springs, like bring the car higher off the ground for this drive..im thinking no and i would need to change the springs. Just need clarification since ive never purchased after market shocks before.

thanks.

Shock lengths can differ in aftermarket applications. High pressure gas charges like what is found in the Bilstein HD could affect height as well. I know if the shock is shorter say in the rear, it can create more rear spring preload but I am not sure if that would affect the height. I would be curious if anyone has taken pictures or measurements. If you want to have control over the height, I would certainly look at the springs before the shocks/struts.

Thanks Sloppymax, ive done some research and realized i was wrong in what i thought shocks and struts do for a car, id be looking for coil overs to do what i want but eh too much for that lol.

Im been debating in my head if i want the d specs with ultra lites or the Koni STR-T's, lots of people seem to take the STR's and i dont know if thats bc of the price diff between the two as the d specs are about twice the price.

Ugh decisions decisions lol..

I like the idea for the rebound/comp adj with the d specs for a soft or rough ride, do the STR-T's maintain a comfy ride or is it more stiffer than stock?

thanks.
