Dampers will not change ride height. I have the FSDs with Eibach Springs, it rides great. Sure they would be nice with Factory Springs as well.

What size tires do you have? I'm worried if I get the Eibach springs my 235's might rub.

my 235's on rkII's rub the fenders only over huge bumps (my rear shocks are toast.) Its current ride height on stock springs has sunk to approx what the eibach or gs springs level. i'm guessing, as long as your struts are fine, you could safely lower your car with either of those spring choices. my friend has the vogtland springs and he likes them, but other people really like the eibachs too.

the Koni FSD's are not adjustable. They also work better with the stock springs. I have them on my 02 9-5 but i am changing to Bilstein. I am looking for a real aggressive sport handling,the Koni's does not offer that feeling.
