Adjustable front struts

I'm currently running Eibach Pro kit springs paired with Koni STR.T struts. I want the front to be stiffer, but not harsher. Thinking about swapping the struts for the yellow Koni adjustables, so I can go full stiff during track days and full soft on the street.

Does anyone run this setup (Pro kit with Koni yellows)? Any feedback?

Question is, will the front be significantly stiffer by replacing the struts and keeping the same spring? Also, when going full soft on the yellows, will it ride as comfortable as the orange STR.Ts?

Car is a '99 GT.

You really need a lot more spring too. H&R Race or Super Race would be good choices. MM has some springs also. This is assuming you want to stich to stock style and not coilovers.

yea lowering springs are so old tech, and mainly for looks. Time for coilovers.

I would pick your strut first and then maximize the front spring rate as per MM's tech page (for instance, they max the Koni yellows out at 375# coil overs). Then match rear rates. MM might recommend non-adjustable Bilstiens. For non-experts, fewer variables is usually better and faster.
