I need to re do the struts and shocks and since I'm wanting to lower it a bit I figure I go with some Koni str.t's and som lowering sport springs. how much additional hardware should I get? do I need the full front and rear strut/shock mounts and bearing kits with new bolts from say ecs or some other similar company? idk much about vag suspension and if anything is a one use only deal any help is much appreciated

Yes, the suspension hardware is one-time use (stretch bolts). Buy new mounts and hardware. Also, look at the condition of all bushings and replace as needed.
