Koni FSD dampers, Eibach Pro Springs, and Eibach rear alignment kit were all purchased from Tirerack. Additional suspension/stability mods on the car are stiffened rear motor mount and adjustable rear anti-roll bar. I was not concerned about lowering height, but the very mild drop is pleasant and subtle. The suspension now exceeds the limits of the tires on the car by a wide margin (Conti DWS). The ride is now quite firm and the rear is now more active (attributed to sway bar mostly). The rear alignment was set back to stock settings. This was purchased as a replacement for stock suspension with 80K+ miles on it. Handling is much improved, but for me it is a significant trade-off vs. ride comfort. Do not expect the comfort of a VW GTI with this setup. Torque steer is very mild since the motor is an aggressively-tuned stock turbo plus bolt-ons. I would recommend this as a performance upgrade to replace the stock suspension if ride comfort sacrifice is required to a lesser extent. Most importantly, it is still an acceptable daily driver for me. It is more comfortable than a 2006 Porsche Cayman S, for instance.

The Koni FSDs certainly did not transform my car s ride. However, I do think it is a little smoother on the highway (high frequency damping) and handling is still at least as good as my stock sport dampers.

Ride is pretty firm, but handling is much improved. Damping is very good. Feels like a factory performance suspension according to my alignment guy. Almost eliminated torque steer. They made the car a lot more fun to drive. Now I want the thicker roll bars...
