Wondering which has more impact on ride quality
A stiffer spring and softer damper or a softer spring and stiffer damper?

Like an Eibach spring and Bilstein grooved damper or an
H&R sport spring and Koni at full soft damper

Which would give a more comfortable ride :???:

Spring:

Softer: more impact is absorved
Stiffer: less impact is absorved

Damper:
Softer: more bouncing
Stiffer: less bouncing

Softer spring and stiffer damper will be more confortable.
Although it wont be the best setup for performance.

It would be really close between those 2. The Konis would probably be better even
with the stiffer spring. The H+R Sports give a pretty good ride if the shock is not
too firm. I think you will need the Konis 1/2-1 turn above full soft on the fronts to
control the ride better.
