so on my trip to VA i thought i had a slack tire, cause my ass end was all over the place. got out to check and everything seamed fine, did the trip (4 hrs one way) got back home the problem was worse. so after working on some side jobs i went ahead and crawled under there and noticed my passengers side rear strut was leaking all over the place the drivers side just started.
so heres my delimma im ok with stock "SS" struts but it might take a lot of money, ill be doing the work myself no question there. but if im going to replace my struts then what about dropping it a little maybe a 1". i dont know anything about dropping, if i touch the suspension on anything (my trucks) it goes up. so i dont know any known good suspension company. and can it stay around the same price as replacing my old struts with OEM or like OEM.
Also i dont mind the firmness of the SS, and would like to keep the handling. but it is a family car and i dont think i want it too firm

Sorry if i'm an a**hole, but i tend to speak whats on my mind and the truth as i see it.. May not be right but it seamed right.
I like taller stiffer springs with a little more ground clearance, so when I replaced my springs I stuck with the 9C1 springs. I also used KYB GR-2 struts (I'm on my second set)...OEM may be a little nicer, but you really can't go wrong with the GR-2's.

I'm with Frank. The GR2s (or ExcelG's as I think they are called these days) and AGXs from KYB are the only respectable aftermarket strut for the W-body. I had Vogtland springs on AGXs and loved the way the car rode and enjoyed having the adjust-ability for long drives. If you are going to drop it and want to keep the car for a while, I'd go for the AGXs or you run the risk of doing the job again. If you don't want to drop it the GR2s/ExcelGs are a fine choice.
Protip: If you don't know what you're doing, don't do it.

I installed the Moog assemblies for the police/taxi (FE4) and they really firmed up the ride and performance over the factory FE2 struts. Not so firm that the family is uncomfortable but firm enough to stop the leaning!
