Default Monroe shocks

Car feels a bit half filled bath and since I need to replace front strut top mount figured do shocks, struts, top mounts (and bearing) in one pop. Got a set of Monroe oespectrums. Were similarly priced to B4 bilsteins. Kinda now unsure whether I should have bit the bullet and got the B6's. 🤪🙈
anyone had any headaches with them or no conplaints?

I have the B4s. They feel excellent on a set of eibach Pros. Granted they were replacing an 80k oem R design set up. The set up is firm, but not jarring and stiffer than the 80k factory. I did topmounts at same time.

Judging by the B4s, the B6s will be a noticably firm ride, but I've read good things.
