[200q20v] Suspension- again

I'm still a little confused by the subject myself.  If you had, say, a
'91 100q and you wanted to use Bilsteins, it's pretty obvious that you'd
get the same Bilstein HDs in question.  However, our 200qs are lowered a
certain amount (I forgot which) from the factory compared to the 100q
and/or any other previous Type 44 tq.  But the list consensus seems to be
that this doesn't "count" and that you should get the HDs anyway, despite
the factory lowering.  

Is anyone using the Sports on a non-lowered 200q20v?

'91 2cq
