I have a 02 GTI 1.8T. I have just bought a pair of Eibach Sportlines and I am looking for a good pair of shocks to narrow it down to. So far, it is between the Koni Sport or the Blistein Sport. I am stumped. Please help me out on which kind to get or name some other shocks I should be looking at. Thanks

Re: Koni vs Blistein (AMR10485)

Koni does not recommend their sport shocks to be used with lowering springs more than about 1.5" of lowering.
They do NOT have a shortened shaft, and thus you run the risk of bottoming out the shock.
Bilstein sports use a shortened piston, and thus would be recommended.

Re: Koni vs Blistein (AMR10485)

so will the konis work with a 1.5" drop?
that is what i have?
or should i have bought different springs?
i thought lots of people were running the konis with 1.5 drop?
