Re: Coupe (90) shocks
What exactly is the lowered sport package. I have never heard of this
and I don't know any Coupe(90,91) that have it here in the US. The
tire size books that the dealers use also show no mention of any other
size than the stock 195/65/15

I think the confusion is all mine due to lack of knowledge...

I don't think I understand this... care to explain?

I am going to have to ask the dealer if my car is "lowered" but it's wearing
195's/65-15. Any easy way to tell if the car has the lowered suspension?
And what if it does? Then how does one go about choosing shocks?

I think so.

I do not want the yellow KONIs, and the red are not available. The Boge
turbo gas could be an alternative but I am getting suspicious about the fact
that the dealer wants $800 (!!!!!!) for 4 stock Boges and I can get
the turbo gas for 1/3 of that price. Something's not right.
