You speak the truth doug, But I would add to that,
IF you get H&R's then Boge TG are BARELY capable of
controlling them. In fact, I bet your car would handle better
and ride smoother with the slightly stiffer Bilstien HD's. I've
driven a few under dampened cars lately and its not great. The
Boge TG are great shocks for a stock car. But with the stifer
H&R's. WHat, 290-330lb progressive fronts! The TG's cant
control them enough and you will have to much spring.
I think the Bilstein HD's will be better but the great match
for these would be the Bilstein Sports. Or if you want to keep
ride height and a little softer, I'd go with HD's and stock
springs. It will feel great but will still have quite a bit of
roll. But will be a bit better dampened than with the TG's.
THat said, the TG's can transform an old 4kq on a worn
suspension. They are a great (and cheaper) alternative.
That said, I will be running custom valved Bilsteins in my
4ktq. But for now it will have HD's and 325/275 springs.
Untill I have time to get them revalved.
Have fun modding the car.
