what did these cars come with , Bilsteins?

i was looking thru my records and noticed at 71K miles and 17 yrs ago the 4 shocks were changed on the car, so i peaked under and noticed they were bilsteins, but i couldnt tell what model

i turned the front wheel and noticed they were black shocks with the yellow housing...

it would be stupid to bu y more Bilstein HDs if I already have them....

They'll be Bilsteins but the standard model. ('Comfort'?) Whatever they are they will be very tired after 17yrs. Why not get new all round? Such an important item

well its not a matter of money.....well it always is....no but seriously, the only reason i was thinking about redoing suspension was because i wanted to lower the car and everyone said gotta get HDs and HR's which is fine....but i was just thinking ....well whats in there now??
like i said overall the ride is good, besides teh tramlining....i dont bottom out, the boot never bounces around...my rubbing problem is mended when i rolled fenders........soooo...yeah ofcourse i think the car should still be lowered.....l :)
