If you're using springs that are lower than stock, use the Bilstein B8. Its the same thing as the B6 but designed for lowering springs.

Just FYI, the aftermarket ballasts are nowhere near the quality of OE. They won't ignite and warm up as quickly and they aren't as bright watt for watt. If you get the 55w, it will be brighter...
