What do you mean by configuration? - I paid $280 for 4 OEM ZHP sport shocks and 4 Vogtland springs. All the stuff was used from a 2004 330 ZHP sedan.

I also replaced all the shock-mounts, washers and bolts as I went along Like to keep things fresh.

I hate to tell you this but judging from the heights you lowered, those springs are really stressing your sport shocks.

I would buy a new set if I were you.

TO give you a rough idea, there is a great sale right now at Turner Motorsports in the states,

INcludes:
- 4 sport shocks
- front ZHP control arms
- Front swaybar

all mounting hardware for $505.00 usd

Just finished the install on my car with many more other parts and it is a night and day difference.

Since you like your lowering springs I would suggest new Blistein sport shocks.
