1) There are no M103 specific struts or shocks . . . the ones for the 2.3L are the same.

2) It's the front springs that are engine specific.

3) Struts and shocks do not affect ride height unless there's some other fault in the suspension. Quite frequently DIY installers will tighten the control arms with the car still off the ground, leading to an improper height.

4) Using OEM, Comfort or HD struts/shocks with spring that have more than an inch of lowering will prematurely wear out those dampers. Stick with Sport units with lowering springs.
