H&R Touring CupKit Question

I have brought my disassembled strut towers to pep boys. They have a nice spring compressor and assemble the strut quick. It isn't much money (time).

Anybody riding on Bilstein Sports Shocks/Struts?

Yeah. Definitely more refined. You'll hate potholes more than you used to though. They're amazing on the track though.

I have them paired with h&r sport springs. Hd bushings. And h&r sways. I previously had the Sachs/uuc setup. Definitely a more comfortable but less sporty ride.
