Application? What do you want to do with the car? "The Best" may not be the best for you.

its for my 89 325ic, but i most likely will stiffen the frame. i like a track ride and can cope, just kick in some comfort for the passengers. best handling is what i need give or take on the overall ride comfort. $ no object....

For the street, i'd say KW-variantII. Adjustable shocks designed for those specific spring rates.. Only downfall is price.

Not the best, best package, but the most common, affordable, durable and pratical application.

If you really want to tweak the setup to the max, I would install Adjustable caster/ camber plates as well.

I'd second that, although there's an option going with KW variant I, but the rear is way too soft compared to the front.
