    Pretty sure the HD shocks are for trucks with things like lift kits and such. HD stands for Heavy Duty.

    thanks for nothing....again lol.....why would the slp be better quality if there both made by the same people? only thing diff (so they say) is that the slp ones are made to there specs

    I would talk to strano to get a definitive answer. Something along the lines how koni Da are best for RR application while Sa is best for the street.

    The blind leading the blind end up in the ditch.

    I have the slp's with strano's. They are an improvement but I am not thrilled with them.

    Haven't had the hd's so I can't compare. There was a time I had to go back to some low mile decarbons that only had 20,000 miles on them and my back was in heaven The slp's are firmer in the front and I really can't say I notice a difference in the back. If I did it again I would go koni Sa's, or in your case qa1's.
