Dunno which Bilsteins are on there. I bought the car with the suspension
already set up that way.
Looks like a little research is in order....

If you're running Bilstein HD (don't think they made Sport for the urq),
they're designed for stock springs. Might the lowered H&Rs be causing
you to hit the compression bump stops?
Bilstein says P36-3016 and P36-3017 for the urq. The rear one is the
same for other type 85 Q, and there's a corresponding Sport model that
would probably work (P36-3058). However, nothing for the P36-3016
front. I was thinking of replacing the soft Boge Turbogas in my car,
but if there'll be a bottoming problem with the Eibachs (not quite as
short as the H&R?), I'll have to look elsewhere. I've got a set of
Bilstein Sports from my old CQ that I may try, but I know one of the
front ones is blown (hello lifetime warranty!).
