would anyone happen to know if the hfp coilovers and the mugen coilovers are short stroke or long stroke?

....are there only those two polar options when dampers are built? my immediate reaction is.....no.

i guess my question then would be: why are you asking?

in regards to your question, i don't believe there is a yes or no answer. i know that i've heard of dampers being shortened because of the spring rate/length was as such (900 lb/in) that it was more appropriate for the damper stroke to be shortened, while having generally the same valving.
- this is a pretty extreme case.

now considering that both the hfp and the mugen kit (especially the hfp) are just uprated/valved variations of the stock suspension and are still intended for everyday use (and are still very near stock ride height), i doubt that such drastic changes in both spring rates and damper valving have been incorporated so that the overall stroke of the damper had been shortened.
