Exclamation Springs for Swift

Hi,
Can anyone guide me about the best suited springs for my swift? I came across Eibach Pro Kit Springs and Pedders Sports Ryder Coil Springs. If someone has installed it and if on swift your feedback would be a great help in deciding which one to choose. If there is any other brand for springs which is better than the two mentioned please let me know. If anybody has any idea about the pricing please share it with me.

The reason for change to these springs to improve the handling and body roll with minimum compromise on comfort / ride quality.

I'd say Pedders Heavy duty springs with comfort gas shox.
U also get lowering springs for the Swift which is what Vikram_D is using on his Swift. Converts the cars looks to the BMW Mini's and also handles well too.But, its ur call on its practicality.

Thanks you all for your advice and suggestions. I have send PM to Vikram_d for his experience. The price of Eibach Pro Kit Springs is 14K and Pedders Sports Ryder Coil Springs is 15K. Price wise there is not much difference. I think that Pedders Heavy duty springs will come around this price also.

You also got to note that Vikram only uses the springs on track. Was following the car on the highway. Awesome
