KYB excel-g vs Bilstein B4

Has anyone ever tried these shocks? currently I'm sitting on stock shocks and eibach springs. I think driving is a little unsteady.
which combo do you think it is the best, I want to have stiff ride but not too stiff and not too soft.
1. KYB excel G + eibach
2. Bilstein b4 + eibach

I don't want to use coilover, because I know what kind of ride coilover is.

While I do not have any experience yet specific to the CX-5, The KYB will be tuned similar to stock ride, the Bilstein is more tuned towards the performance side.

There are also KONI adjustables available. Tire Rack has had a good sale on them recently...

I have just installed those Konis(yellow), from Tirerack. Though my stock ones were still OK on CS springs at 65k.
I was trying to get rid of some vibration, and it turned out to be something else. Oh well, no biggy. Most likely, they did not have to much life left at that mileage anyway.
