Thank you, Ed. Reading this article now.
John, sorry I missed your question last time...OK, I went to the shop today and measured the Monty's height from floor to wheel arch is 26-3/4" at the front. As far as I know, the springs on it are the stock ones. Was this the factory ride height? It seems high.
My car had Bilsten when I got it, to which I added the AH suspension kit. Generally, I much prefer Koni over brand B. However, the AH kit is plenty low to the ground.
If I were to it over, I would use Koni and small shims to very slightly raise the ride height of the AH kit.
