    Question Suspension advise please.

    I'm going to be ordering a set of Bilstein B6's in the coming days and was wondering what else i should have a look at changing/upgrading whilst the suspension is off the car to improve the handling ?
    Mileage is just under 37K.

    B4's same (basically) as the standard shocks. About £240 the 4.
    B6's Uprated by approx 40% from standard. Cost about £500 ish for the 4.
    B8's are for suspension thats lowered by about 40mm from standard.
    Cost about the same as the B6's.
