I think the drop-hats work in the same manner -effectively reducing the height of the strut piston.
I just got off the phone with a guy at SupremePower and he explained that the drop hats change the position the spring sits on the perch. They don't effect the height of the strut piston at all. Can anyone confirm/verify this? Though I'm willing to be a guinea pig with adding the drop hats and 5mm spring pads to a Eibach with Koni/Bilstein suspension (the goal being H&R height with street quality ride), I'd choose to keep OEM perches, as SamDoe1 suggested, if it meant avoiding premature wear on my struts. Thanks!
