MOT Springs?

GTV had it's exam the other day, wasn't too bad.
The handbrake failed, but the garage managed to adjust it until it reached a 'pass'.
It did need new front lower arms, but then it passed.

There were a few advisories, including corrosion to all 4 springs (garage told me nothing to worry about, he was just being thorough)

The car is going to be getting a bit of a makeover in the coming months, so new springs will be on the to do list (80k, pretty sure they're original)
I think I'd prefer to stick with standard height springs, but what are the choices other than OEM ones? KYB seem to be mentioned a fair bit.

I've got kyb springs and dampers.. very good for the money but they arn't progressive like the lowering springs so I guess they are a bit harsher over small bumps and ripples.. ???
