Default Which shock absorber ??

Lowered my car with Eibach ProKit so now thinking of switching out the shocks.

Not sure whether to fit:

KONI Sport FA und RA 2x8041-1228SPORT + 2x8041-1229SPORT

OR

Bilstein 4x B8 Full Kit Shortened Shock Absorbers Dampers 24-109987 24-110013

any help or advise would be appreciated

Thanks.

I order Koni's from NW and within a week the front driver side blew. I went to Bilstein a week after that, no issues in the 2 years since I put them on.

OK, so I decided to go with the Blistens, getting them installed Tuesday. Will take the opportunity to swap out my front brake pads.

JOM - ADJUSTABLE COILOVER KIT FOR MERCEDES SLK CLASS R170 (1996-2004) | eBay

Few months ago I thinking about this kit coilovers but I bought only sport springs and this was good idea.
JOM is cheap and I think not the best.
If you want more lowered car you can use sport lowered springs and thinner springs pads.

I do not want to lower.
If anything raise 1/2" so front will go over curbs with out rubbing.
Was qurious on ride/handling, with adjusted correctly.
I figured as cheap as they are there has to be someone out there that has used them.
But if the shocks do not last long, then they are not worth it.
Shocks make a big difference in a vechicle.
