new suspension

I have an opportunity to replace my cars suspension.I wont foot the entire bill but want to change the anti roll bars as well.The suspension squeaks, its been lubricated and lasted a few months.I get some sound when braking whlist reversing.I get the same sound when pulling off.From traffic lights,when i pull off quicker.

Am thinking suspension arms, lower and upper.Get it lowered by 30mm.Problem is i would like to get H&R springs blistein shocks(dampers) but dont have them localy i can get koni or eibach though.

Which is the better between the two?The roads here are ok.Pot holes when it rains and uneven roads after patching pot holes.I sometimes travel on a pumpy(not tared) road for about 100m.Currently keeping my 16", but will definetly change to 18" later during the year.Suspension should good for 16" and 18" chrome rims.

I need help urgently coz i need place an order by tomorrow morning. I have read a lot about changing suspension on this forum.Currently which is the best between Koni and Eibach?Even a combination.

You can buy both anti roll bars, billstein shocks and HR springs here:

When lowering, you need Billsteins B8 version.

There are KW kits and Eibach pro kit on this page as well. Consider them too.

Usual combinations are HR with Billsteins or Eibachs with Konis. The dampers in Eibach pro system kit should be Konis as well (I may be wrong). If money is not so big problem and you drive on good roads, KW Sports Coilover Suspension Kit is one of the best options.
