I'm also doing the same mod on my 87 16V. I'm putting H&R lowering springs on, with Koni shocks all the way around. I'll also report how much it dropped mine. I just checked and right now mine has 2-bump pads on the front and the back.
The Konis just came, and the springs are on the way. Can't wait to get rid of my worn out self-leveling system.
Brian: Could you e-mail me some pics of your car? I'd love to see how the smoked lights look! Thanks!
