Evo 9 GSR Stock Bilstein vs Tein Monoflex

Hi all, I have an almost stock E9 GSR, the previous only only changed the suspenion from stock Bilstein to Tein Monoflex.
I've been driving the car for over a year now and the Tein suspension's knocking noise is beginning to kill me. I've found original stock Bilstein suspenion sets. I wonder...what's the handling and ride "comfort" are like between stock and Tein?

Much better on the Bilsteins.

Pair them up with either GTWorx springs or Swift 's Spec-R are the most agressive and stiffest. Gtworx dont drop as far as the Swifts. If ride comfort is what you are after then get the Bilsteins and GTworx springs.

It WILL handle better than the Tein and also ride better.

ahha thanks for your prompt reply, just so happen I've found a set of almost new E9 Blistein with stock springs in the market.
Apart from the two, do I need to acquire or replace anything when I change from Tein to stock Blistein?

I'd probably get an alignment right after you install those. I know that may seem obvious to most, but tires are expensive and there always seems to be one guy that doesn't know.
