yellows are going to be a firmer shock than the FSD. The FSD are specially designed to soak up hard bumps, but still maintain sporty ride characteristics.

Yellows are good shocks, and have adjustable rebound, but they won't ride softer than OEM (which is what you said you wanted).

Koni doesn't list the FSD for use with the Eibach springs - I suspect it's because of the limited travel of the lower springs.

I contacted them directly and they suggested Koni Yellow for use with the Eibach prokit springs.

Another option that will lower you about 1" is Bilstein B12 setup - uses specially valved Bilstein dampers and Eibach prokit springs, made to work together.

Koni sells a package with FSD+eibach. Don't know if valving or spring is different in a set than when bought independently, but you can always get that set.

Bilstein PSS10 coilovers can be adjusted to be softer then stock,
I have the PSS9 on my Audi, best mod for sure, because the stock suspension is unbelievably stiff, stiffer then M3’s / Z06’s
