    from what i understand, the regular bilstein HDs dont work well with lowered cars but are perfect for the stock height.
    On the other hand, those same bilstein HD shocks are revalved by strano parts based on which lowering springs you purchase.
    so the revalved bilstein is definately a great choice for lowered cars.

    I have non-adjustable UMI LCA's on my car. My adjustables are the panhard and the torque arm. ProKit drop with LCA brackets.

    UMI is my perference for suspension parts.

    not sure how different lowering the forth gens are from the third. other than the coil overs in the front..

    but i dropped my 91RS about two inches. the only thing i bought was monroe sensatrac shocks and struts. and i never had any issues. it rode smooth. never had the "dump truck" feel too it. and i drove it cross country 3 times.

    cross country = san diego, ca-->pensacola, Fla.

    They won't bind like the poly/poly ones will.

    For a street car the poly/rod end option is a great compromize!
