drop will be the same, but the ride quality will be a night and day difference..

+1

All springs do is control the ride height of the vehicle

Ride height should not change with damper replacement.

I have the Koni FSD shocks with the H&R race springs ....... the car rides nearly as smooth as it had when first purchased but with much more stiffness.

I have the Koni FSD's with the Eibach Pro-Kit Spring (similar drop) and there is a definite improvement in ride quality.

The springs is what decides ride height, the shocks/struts are more towards ride smoothness/quality.
