You guys are confusing springs with shocks.
Bilstein makes Sport and HD struts/shocks.
h&R makes Sport and Race springs
Both Sport and HD struts ride pretty stiff regardless of springs. If you want confort and performance then go with Koni Str.t or Koni Yellows.
The best comfort/performance struts are Koni FSDs but they are back ordered everywhere.
