I don't think those Konis will like such short springs. I had those same Orange Konis with FRPP springs, and one of the struts started leaking in less than six months. I was very disappointed. They performed well until the strut went bad. They were comfortable, and handled well (with a 24mm rear bar). You will probably want shocks/struts that have shortened shafts and have been revalved for the 2" drop you can expect from the Sportlines. The Koni Orange is advertised as one step up from OEM. Good luck.
