Question Help GT Suspension Upgrade

Hi Guys,

I want to lower my 08 Alfa Romeo Gt 1.9 jtdm. i want something to use everyday, so it cant be too harsh.
i dont know if i go to coilovers or just a kit with damper and springs.
If you guys can post some pics of your gt lowered it will help a lot.
I did read a few posts and a lot of people say koni fsd + eibach pro kit but i dont like how fsd works.

I was thinking in maybe:

1) KW V1 or ST Coilovers( i think they are the same, only the ST aren't stainless steel)
2) Eibach Pro Street S
3) Bilstein B6 + Eibach Pro Kit
4) BILSTEIN B12 PRO-KIT (Bilstein B8 + Eibach Pro Kit)

What do you guys think is the best?

Regards,
Bruno Silva

I d avoid coilovers - every single car I ve ever ridden in/driven with them is as hard as ****, certainly not everyday usable.

I ve got 30mm Eibachs and Monroe Reflex shocks, its a good combo

I had FSDs and they were rubbish, Koni copied Monroe's idea for FSDs, but messed it up. The whole point was that they should firm up when thrown into a corner and be softer when going straight but FSDs are just hard all the time. The Reflex and Sensortrac (the Reflex's predecessors) are way better than FSDs.
