Im looking to lower the 6 on eibachs and at the same time rebuild the back axle with 21 mm bars. I have a 25. Something arb I will try after lowering.
I have 3 options for the shock absorbers ;

1 New genuine shocks all round
2 Bilstein b6/8
3 Genuine front shocks, vts rear shocks.

The car is mainly used on the uk's pot holed roads and motorways. Im looking for suspension that is slightly firmer than standard and matches the springs..not a fan of overdamped cars where it constantly bobs and skips over bumps. Has anyone any experience on the above

Bilstein B8 all the way!
found B6 very spongy (when i made the mistake of fitting them instead of B8s)

been running the B8s few years now, running 21mm torsion bars and eibachs springs.
more than bearable on road (when my cars not in bits)

Same as what I have, B8's and eibachs (which is a B12 kit I believe) with 21mm TB's.
I also have solid rear mounts, not too harsh on the road.

I run B8s with eibach on the front and 21mm bars with 205 challenge spec dampers on the back. No complaints what so ever. No solid mounts either.

Bilstein B8's here too with Eibach's - brilliant setup

When stripped out, with track tyres and solid mounts & wishbones it gets a little harsh, but when the interior etc was still in it was magic

Another vote for the B12 kit (B8 fronst + Eibachs, B6 rears) with 21mm bars.

Down s**tty roads with potholes everywhere it does get a little annoying but then they would be in any car.
