As was mentioned, the Koni's are discontinued. In my opinion, the Bilsteins in the rear are too stiff for a street car. I ran them on my MarkVIII for a few weeks, and the rear was so stiff it was jarring, so I pulled them off and went with the Tokico blues. In my opinion, for a car that gets driven on the street, a set of Eibach springs with the Tokico blues, and SC sway bars is the way to go. The Eibach's are a progressive spring, so the ride will still be comfortable for normal driving, but then they stiffen up when you load them up in a corner, and their spring rate matches nicely with the Tokico shocks.
