Shocks/Struts

I'm looking to replace the shocks/struts on my wife's '04 9-3 Convertible.

It has stock springs and we're looking for a stock feeling ride.

Genuine Saab has Koni FSDs and Koni Sport (Adjustables) on sale...

Either one of those provide what I'm looking for? Any other suggestions?

the FSD's are designed to be used with the stock springs. the koni sports were designed to be used with lowering springs.

I see that the FSDs are to be used with the stock springs only, but the Sports say absolutely nothing about not being for use with stock springs...

I guess I'll have to look into that more and make a call.

fsd will feel the most like stock, and the sports give a stiffer ride.
