Default Help with decifering Arnott struts

I will be repalcing struts in the front on the 07 a8L and it is not with sport suspension(according to the dealer) -i guess the dilema is - Arnott has comfort and normal struts with about 150$ difference in price. Which one would i need?The spec state the cheaper ones are non adjustable but even wit h normal(non sport) suspension there should be a lift mode right - this should mean it it adjustable strut?My car hasnt arrived yet from CA and havenr seen it yet.

Anyone has any thoughts on this?

Thanks
Svetlin

When you buy the whole strut, they must sell by part # to avoid being returned or complained. I'm sure the eShock is the same, the bag is the same and both are controlled by suspension controller to achieve the correct height and stiffness for both sports and non. IMHO. I've never had to worry since I only replaced the bag and my eShock is original.
Cheers,
Louis

Yes, The same load leveling and height adjustment functionality as the OE is available in the Arnott designed new struts.
