I think I really wanted Konis, but they just make an insert, not the whole strut. Hollowing out the old strut and sticking the insert in wouldn't even be such a big deal, but the process looks like it leaves the itself open to being easily damaged and flying apart.

Obviously plenty of cars are set up this way to race...but that's just my impression.

At this point I'm nearly ready to get a set of the stock Boges and stop worrying about it. :)

Thanks for the help.

Sorry to hear about your dilema....

I dropped my car with the Sport HR springs and Sport Bils.

The car went pretty low with the springs. It dropped maybe a few more fractions of an inch over the past 2 months or so...but I also drive pretty darn agressively.

However on your side, even if the car were to settle another inch or so, it doesn't seem like that would be enough...

Good luck. Looks like you might be going to the KONI set-up.

You shouldn't have too much trouble selling the Bils online though.
