Bilstein shocks have a heavier preload. They are made stronger, I guess you can say, and stock shocks. Therefore they will raise the car. That's why most people use the Bilsteins with lowering springs and the car will ride better because the suspension will travel less allowing for the use of lowering springs without too much rubbing, if any at all.

I really dont' know how much they'll settle, they should settle somewhat, it's only logical.

I have bilsteins with my Racing Dynamics springs and the car is lowered maybe an inch. I'm sure it'd be much lower with stock shocks.

Well, this probably didn't help, but it did give me something to do.
