So if there is an increase in static ride height with the Bilstein HD shocks, how about the sport shocks, how much is it? How about either with the change to either the HR or the Eibach springs. To further compicate things, on an Avant? I've seen mention of spring pads? or perches? What are these exactly rubber pads to go between the springs and???
I am in snow a lot in the winter and would love to replace springs and shocks but really don't want to go lower than 1" than where we are with a car that's "normal height"
If there is an increase with the shocks and a decrese with the springs I could be just right?
