I'm not sure which of these two to choose while keeping my stock springs and height.
Koni sport (yellows) are intended for shorter stiffer springs. Maybe you're thinking of the FSD's.
What I read was that they were designed for stock but are not length dependent and can be run on lowered springs. People seem to tighten more when lowered to accommodate. Could be wrong but that's what I gathered from the koni sight. For the xdrive they specify lowered or not and the yellows for that car suggest not lowered. No? I know I've read many people in stock but most people doing aftermarket shocks also want lowered ride height.
