The RS will fit, but it is far from hard. Replacement bilsteins are expensive but good stuff. If you want to keep the springs, you could do Koni inserts to a stock RS/L strut body. KYB AGX would work but they are not the greatest. Coilovers are likely your best bet for something hard.

if your budget is under a $1000 you could get megan coilovers for about $850...
or if your budget is more around $600 you could get kyb agx adjustable + eibach/perrin/h&r springs or something along those lines (probably a used set for $400)

I found a place that sells each kyb for 150 each. I can buy the 2 fronts and use the same spring I already have.

The KYB AGX is adjustable with 4 settings. The KYB GR2 is non-adjustable and about 15% stiffer than stock RS struts, but they cost half as much as the AGX. You could use either, but the AGX would allow you to stiffen them for track use.
No need to change springs, but there are stiffer and lower springs available, but then you would need to change all four.

There are some good sellers on ebay.
