RE: Spring/Shock Combo's

If you want less/no roll with a supple ride for soaking up the bumps then go with stiffer bars and stock or relatively mild springs & struts, IMFO. Don't lower the car if you want a nice ride and ability to handle nasty bumps - suspension travel is your friend here - let the anti-roll bars do the work of controlling lean for a good ride.
