DD ns chipped Avant (project make my Avant drive like a Mini), I've gleaned that a lot of guys like the Bilsteins on AZ, but have read the Konis are a little more plush and provide the same handling. I don't want to feel every crack and expansion joint. I want to improve turn in, body roll & dive, and understeer, while keeping the kids in the booster seats and the dog in the back happy and oblivious. Low budget alternatives are greatly appreciated. Sport ride height is fine... Opinions?
Thanks guys,
jws

KONI's I feel are a much better all around shock. More expensive as well unfortuantely. I do have a KONI coilover in stock at a great price, email if you're interested.

i have bilsteins/neuspeed race and no complaints very good for a daily and i drive canyon roads every day. if i were to get sways id say it would be the perfect stiffness/ride height for a daily.

Koni's no question if you have to drive around with the kids.
