9-5 spring choice

I'm looking for springs to go with some koni shocks. I hear that the Eibach springs aren't stiffer than the aero springs, which isn't what i'm looking for. can anyone find a source for h and r springs for the 9-5 sedan 99-01? Does anyone know if these are stiffer? What about the B and G kit?

On my 99 9-5, I have LPT springs with Blestein shocks all round.
Other mods include SASaab 23 mm front & rear roll bars & poly bushings all round. The ride is fantastic & I can stuff it into corners without any noticeable body roll. The best thing - The front bumper still clears parking lot bump stops & all kerb ramps & speed bumps.
I wish I could say the same for my 2006 9-5 Aero.. The front bumper grinds by just by looking at a kerb

You could get coil overs...but I think that would be to stiff, although my buddy has coil overs on his daily driver in his Mitsubishi Starion.

Springs don't do a whoooooole heck of a lot on street sype setups.
most manufactures are pretty close.
your shocks/struts will make the most significant change.

I have B&G, and they're alright.
the eibach pro dampers seem kind of mushy on them.
when they let out, bilsteins will go on, to stiffen them up.
