Default shock questions

im thinking about upgrading the viggen's shocks...have a few questions:

bilstein vs. konis...which is better for the viggen overall...aside from just adjustable vs. non adjustable

stock springs with shocks- the viggen is already low enough for me...its there any major flaw to keeping the stock springs with upgraded shocks?

if i were to get bilstien shocks over the koni shock/spring kit, what springs go well with bilstein shocks?

thanks guys

just adding koni's to the existing springs is a very good option

However for just a little more $$ you can get the koni kit (spring/shocks) from jegs I beleive, I think $570 ish

the only other springs I would consider are H&R or Eibach

I am debating koni kit or koni-eibach

Personally, I'd keep the stock ride height and not get new springs, just new shocks. I have a Viggen bumper on my NG900, which rides a little lower than a Viggen since it has Abbott springs. There are certain parking garages and driveways I can't take unless I want to completely destroy the underside of my bumper. It's already a little scratched up.
