Question Bilstein damper question

ok so i think i have finally settled on a set of dampers and a set of spring and i'm just wondering if anyone has any knowledge of either one of the products. I've settled on bilstien sport series front and rear dampers and h&r sport springs. On the bilstien site is says B8 front struts and B6 rear shock but i noticed the fronts are 36 mm and the rears are 46 mm will this make a difference? Also what is your guy's opinion on h&r springs.

FWIW, Bilsteins are typically valved for rebound, and are usually pretty firm on the street. They operate great on smooth pavement, but will shake the car apart on rougher roads. I've owned two different versions (non-Honda applications, though), and have driven a few other cars with them, and they all reacted the same way.

What spring rates are you looking at for the H&Rs?

the h&r spring rates are 330F and 280R. and i don't mind a bit of a stiffer ride. most of the roads where i live are pretty good but there are some rough roads but i don't drive on them much
