Need help choosing front struts

95 BIRD LOWERED 2 1/4 in , cut eibach springs. 255/50/16 on Corvette 16x10 wheels. I need help choosing front struts. I would like something adjustable, or something that will work on autocross/ road coarse, and still be streetable. Thanks

Koni makes the best shocks by far and are also adjustable.

Your car doesn't have struts.

Got any pics of that bird? I'm curious how that would look. What did you do about brakes, just redrill the stock rotors?
