Bilstein B4 with sport suspension or Eibach prokit

very interested in the bilstein B4's, my shocks are needing replacement soon (110k miles, one front looks like it has leaked a bit) and I'm on OE sport suspension. I want something that will tighten the car back up a bit, and wouldn't be underdamped for a very mild drop, like eibach pro kit. I've read that the B4 is like 10% stiffer than EO sport struts, and they come for the sport height. Am I going to be disappointed with these shocks/struts if all I want is a OE like replacement or slightly better with a small drop? Or are these a decent matchup

B4 with Eibach springs are a great option if you want to keep the factory ride but lower your car a little bit. At 110k miles, make sure you replace your strut mounts, bumpstops (with shorter ones), and all the wear and tear items. Do it once, do it right!
