I really didn't expect to find anything when I searched for them. I just saw that so many race cars were using Sachs, so I figured it was worth a shot.

Worry not, I think I'd probably take the monotube Bilstein SPs over the twin-tube Sachs dampers. Dunno, though--they claim to use digressive piston designs in their twin-tubes, so it could be interesting. It really would be nice if Bilstein created a package with springs that matched the dampening rate of their Bilstein SP shocks, though.

Dunno, I guess we'd have to measure and see where your ride height would end up. My guess is it would make the wheel gap look like a stock Cooper, since your car is lightened and has a shorter tire sidewall.

No worries, I love my set-up. I was just giving you a hard time.
