Aren't the SRT OEM bilstein struts/shocks the same length as the OEM WK shocks? Wouldn't the SRT struts/shocks fit perfectly within the stock wk coils? What am I missing here? Why wouldn't this be recommended?
The SRT OEM Bilsteins are quite a bit shorter than the stock WK front struts/rear shocks. If you did put them on a stock WK coil the preload would destroy the Bilstein as the springs are sized for a longer strut.
The spring and strut/shock work together to give you a nice ride. If one is incorrect the system is not going to work properly and your ride will suffer.
Do them as a package. Any package will fit any WK. Just keep it all SRT or all stock WK size.
