What's the difference between these two?

I have an 87 300E lowered with Eibach pro-kit springs and like how my OEM shocks feel. However, the left front strut is leaking and I will need to change. I'm curious as to how these shocks will feel with regards to ride quality.

The HD's are stiffer but are more for vehicles at full ride height. The Sports are similar to the HD's but are for lowered vehicles. Neither will really feel like OEM shocks. If you want sportier handling with OEM ride quality you should consider a conversion to Sportline suspension parts. We offer such conversions through PartsShop. We can hook you up with individual bits or a 100% conversion to OEM Sportline pieces.

Just an idea...Lee
