I take it you're running the sports suspension now?

Well you could always go for the Koni adjustable shocks with some Eibach lowering springs or you could even go all out on some coilovers by KW, FK, H&R, etc. At the age of your car I don't think you'd want lower springs used in conjuction with stock shocks.

The ride with the Koni adjustable shocks and some lower springs should be fine. I sat in my friends car with Koni coilovers. It feels stiffer than stocks b/c of the higher spring rates but it's not that bad, just stiffer and a bit more bumpy on the bumps.

Are you using the car mainly for daily driving on streets or will it ever see the track?

I have a brand new set of factory springs out of a 2000 A4 2.8 quattro. i'll sell them for $200 obo.

You could always try the Koni single adjustable shocks if you're willing to go aftermarket, else stick with OEM if you're using OEM Audi sport suspension springs?
