Unhappy Rough Ride : Replace Springs or Shocks?

*sigh ... i can't stand the softness of my Springs and Shocks anymore, i am using Eibach for Springs and Blistein for Shocks, i have also increase the rubber damping on the front by 4 points and back by 3 points but still the distance between the fender and tyre is still 2.5cm!

Over here the pot holes are terrible and each time my w124 goes high speed i feel like the car is coming apart!

But what should i change? i think i should change the shocks as i heard that Eibach with the stock shocks are a pleasure to drive... my guess is the Blistein has gone bonkers, springs usually last a perpetually right?

Please advise, i dun wan to feel like i am riding a speed boat everyday!

erm... after browsing the forum. realised that the culprit is aimed at the shocks, i believe that is the problem...

deciding to use KONI adjustable / KONI sport...

front : 8741-1092 Sport
back : 26-1198 Sport

is this the correct serial, pretty cool since it's adjustable.. advise pls?
