Default Bilstein B12 Pro Kit - Improvement on Brembo?

Guys, I have a 2011 Mustang GT with Brembo and 3.73.
I want to lower the car a little and improve the ride quality. The car seems to bounce too much for my liking especially on concrete and more uneven roads.

Has anyone installed the Bilstein/Eibach Pro Kit B12 on their 2011+ Mustangs? If so, did you notice a significant difference in quality of ride? Can you describe how it was improved, for example, was some bounce eliminated, is the ride smoother on uneven surfaces?

I know the Brembos already come with a suspension upgrade so I'm hoping I don't waste money.

I'm making a decision on suspension upgrades and appreciate any help.

I have no experience with that kit. But, I do believe it will be a huge improvement over stock. I went with Steeda Sport Springs and Koni shock/struts and the improvement was massive. The Brembo suspension really isn't very good, only slightly better than non-Brembo. Actually, they both suck and a suspension upgrade is needed either way IMO. Whatever you do, don't go the "rear springs only" route.

That kit is pretty decent but the cost of those and not being adjustable always pushes me to koni yellows.
