struts for the sportlines

I Already purchased the Eibach Sportline springs, so i figured that i would stick with those, I just got the MSR 043 17" rims with the falcon tires put on today, but i was waiting untill i get the struts to put the springs on. since i read on there those springs can kill the OEM struts (i have the 08 LT2 Sport) I was looking at the Koni's but i thought i would check with you guys before i purchase the struts since i already have the springs (that way i can wait to paint them all together (the joy of working on aircraft and learning about polyeurethane paint's flexability))

08 Cobalt LT2,
PERF MODS: KN&N Typhoon short-ram intake, Borla Cat-back exhaust, 17" MSR 043 rims with Federal SS-595 Tires, Eibach Sport springs (soon to install after repainted)
AUDIO: 2010 Rockford Fosgate Punch Series(RFP) 6x9 components(includes 8 tweeters) powered by a RFP p400-4 amp, 2 10" RFP P202/48 Subwoofers in a single port box. with 4AWG wiring. Powered by a Rockford Fosgate P500-2 amp. & Kenwood KDC-BT838U Reciever.

The front ones are easy to adjust because they are externally adjustable and you use a key at the top of the strut tower to adjust them. The rear ones are a little bit of pain because you have to take off the shock and twist the housing to adjust them.

Suspension- FE5 SS/TC Springs, FE5 Control Arms, Koni Yellow Sport Shocks/Struts, DC Sports Strut Tower Brace

So would the Koni's be the best bet with the sportline springs? or does someone know of a better combination with these springs?
