I've got the same car and the same situation. Here is what I've found...
read to the bottom, as it's in no particular order.
RD Enterprises: 800-683-2890 / www.shox.com
Imparts: (800) 325-9043 / www.imparts.com
Autobahn International: 503.629.0438 / www.autobahnint.com
MacNeil Automotive: http://www.macneilauto.com/index.htm 1.800.313-7601
Vortrag Motorsports: www.vortrag.com / email todd candey (on list)
Boge Turbo GAS:
H&R Springs: $179.95
Bilstein: (HD rate)
$432.40 (for 4)
* MacNeil has no Konis.
* RD Enterprises didn't say what Bilstein models he quoted (there are
SPORT and HD models). They also sell Eibach, but at full list.
* Autobahn International is sold out of H&R springs (supposedly)
Here are some links detailing applications for the 4kq:
Eibach specs: http://www.eibach.com/cgi-bin/appguide1
Bilstein specs: http://catalog.com/susq/bilstein/baudi.htm
Here is a link to Koni's website:
I have Koni part numbers:
8610-1262 sport ext adj front
86-2086 sport adj, but not ext., rear

If you've got a lead or go with something, please let us all know.
I've heard that the ranking in order of stiffness is:
Boge Turbo GAS (least)
Bilstein Sport/HD (most)
but that is tantamount to a rumour.
Oh, and MacNeil says 10 days as they have nothing on hand.
Again -- anyone have any aftermarket they wanna sell?
