Has anyone tried the Koni Sport shock with a lowering springs

I want to give my SLK a sportier ride and stance. I am leaning towards the Koni Sport with a set of lowering springs. Has anyone tried this? Are the Konis worth the extra $200? What springs would you recommend? I looked at the suspension thread and it had some good info but just 1 reference to the Konis.

Kdashby,

Did you end up trying out the Koni sports with a lowering spring? After looking for a couple days the only combo I have read about is the Koni yellowsport shocks and RENNTech lowering springs. I am going to be doing a similar modification so was wondering about your progress? Thanks in advanced.
