Suspension Upgrades

I feel it is that time after many miles I am looking at upgradeing the suspension.
Car: 2009 Ford Mustang V6
Wtih Pony Kit

When I replaced my ball joins I did the LCAs in the front, the steering rack with inner/outer tie rods have been replaced.

I wanted to get some feedback from many of you from what I was planning.

$199.00
https://www.americanmuscle.com/eibac...s-2005-v6.html
$264.87
https://www.americanmuscle.com/eibach-shocks-0509.html
$473.04
https://www.americanmuscle.com/2005-...er-plates.html
$253.66

Or instead of the above springs/shocks could do this from Koni:

$580

Thanks everyone!

I bought the Orange Koni struts/ shocks and they work well. Kept the stock springs. one strut started leaking oil after two years, and Koni has lifetime warranty, but it cost me 40 bucks to send it back to them. They will sell you a new one and ship it, then you change it out and send back the dead one and they credit your card if inspection reveals warranty defect. I would consider KYB first next time if I were buying again. I do pound the front suspension pretty hard diving into corners.

When you say "upgrade the suspension"; what are you trying to achieve? For example:
> restore original factory ride?
> lower the car for appearance or handling or both?
> reduce body roll in corners?
> firm up the suspension; and if so how firm do you want it?
