I'd agree that the struts are the weak part about the suspension.
If I had to do it, I'd to Bilstien HDs and stock sport suspension otherwise.  
On the lowest perch you get a slight lowering effect, but with much better 

Never got around to it even though we started to really need it on our 2000 
A4 Avant 1.8T.  Ended up with the Allroad.  I lower it from the dash. <grin>
