Ok so this is the response I got. Hmmm.

Would it still be a great match or would the Bilsteins be overly firm for the soft springs? What kind of handling, comfort/harshness traits can I expect with the Bilsteins alone? Do you strongly recommend RCE+Bilstein combo as a daily commuter/kids transporter? I'm a bit concerned that it may be too firm for my toddlers though I'd probably enjoy it myself.

The shocks will "work" with stock but the IDEAL, MATCHED, INTENDED combo is with the RCE springs which are firmer and actually improve the handling of the car.

Thats my take on the situation.
