I eventually fitted eibach pro kit with stock dampers. At the same time all the front wishbones were replaced. Car is slightly firmer but not very much. At least it is not as wobbly as standard damper kit (though alfa 156 has got a great/firm standard suspension kit in comparison to e.g. Toyota).
So as a overall result it is not a dramatic change in handling/comfort/cornering. But very slight improvement and slight comfort compromise. But a great outer look improvement!
Now I understand why folks detained me to replace springs only while I could have replaced the whole absorbers at the same time. It's hell of job to DIY absorber/spring/wishbone replacement.
