I've got Bilsteins and H&R springs. Really nice ride, not to firm, but if
you are in urban areas, this combo drops the nose about 1/4" lower than your
average parking curb, which can lead to unpleasant consequences.

I don't know which Bilsteins they are, I'm going to try looking at the rear
shocks and see if I can see any markings.
The ride isn't bad, just a little "harsher" than I prefer, but that
could be due to a bad strut or two. On bumps the Right strut klunks.
