Lowering Spring Advice

Hi,
Looking to lower my 695 XSR. Cracking car, but the wheel arch gap at the rear especially is bugging the hell out of me.
Looked on Eibach's website and it's confusing in the sense that its asking me to identify if its a AYX11, AYZ11, or AYB11?

Has anyone performed this mod themselves, give some advice.
I am aware that the front end has a lower ride height and that any lowering springs will lower by a predefined amount and that it may not be as obvious on the front end.
I am also aware that people advise replacing the rear bump stops for coupe ones.
All im really after is a confirmation of which springs to go for (maybe a product code) and whether they will make a huge difference to the ride comfort.

Cheers for any advice in advance.
