Default Quick strut & shock Question

Hello all,

I am going to buy new suspension tonight for my 200,000 mile tdi original suspension. I am getting the koni str t. (orange) for the fronts, but my question is should i put koni's in the rear also or go with bilstein tc for the rear? Because it is a bit firmer. Is it better to have firmer rear? Or it doesnt really matter, not towing anything. Also the car has 19" rims 235/35/r19...

Thanks in advance

Need new suspension pronto, car hits the bumps too hard now and nose dive!

I prefer firm rears on my ladies
I just put a fresh set of Koni STR.T's on at 195k replacing the original. I went with an OEM GLI springs for a modest drop. I'm very happy with the ride. Feels much more controlled and agile. I'm also running 18"x7.5 BBS wheels.
