Koni strut suspension kit. Decent?

This is the kit I'm looking at

http://www.europerformance.co.uk/pag...roduct=2578735

I was postponing installing springs on my car as people seems to say that the ride was very bouncy.

I know coil overs are over kill for my needs.
I just want a decent drop and something that handles well on the street without breaking my back and for a good price

I'm looking for a drop like this below... Is this too low for daily driving and getting over speed bumps?

http://www.e90post.com/forums/attach...1&d=1170448036


These coil overs work out at the same price as getting springs and having a shop install them. If it is a damper and spring kit, I can install them myself as it is a straight swap right? I have done it on my ricer civic 7 years ago.

What do you think of this kit?

Cheers

I have konis, but not that kit. Koni has a pretty good reputation, and many people seem to be happy with their products. Looks like a good kit to me.

Thanks for chiming in.

Should 50mm front and 25mm rear be just perfect to get rid of the gap between the tyres and arch

Or should I go with 35 front 20 rear?
