If you're now driving on 9 yr-old shocks, believe me--plain ol' vanilla
Boge turbo gas will be "something a little stiffer" than you have gotten
used to, and it will not affect the _designed_ height of the car. I don't
know how much sag your '90 V8 might now have--if the old shocks have lost
gas pressure. My '91 200q became elevated by about 3/4" with new Boge turbo
gas shocks.
