You want the SP kit from what I know. The ND shocks are not as good. I have the crew can kit and I like it. Your going to hear that a lot of people are having problems but I guess I was lucky.

Bell Tech shocks have always sucked IMHO
Get the McGaughys 2/4 spring kit and KYB shocks.

For Qa1s you have to order part numbers TS 507 and TS801
they are pricey but work well
summit racing has had them the cheapest also.

Can anyone else confirm these part numbers? I am also looking at the 2/4 kit here and would like the best possible performance. Are these for sure the right QA1's for this application?

Price difference between the 964sp and the spring kit with the QA1's is only like $100 bucks, seems like a no brainer if these shocks are correct and that much better.

I got the part numbers from unbroken and the price difference is considerably more than 100 buks i got my bell tech kit from jegs for 425 shipped and the shocks alone are around 600 shipped even if you go with the mcgaughy kit it still a big difference in price. I would recommend going with the qa1 and mcgaughy kit but depends pn if you wanna fork out that much cash
