Well there are a few options, depending on what you want to achieve and your budget.

Xpower by Eibach
Eibach
Motorbuild (Harsh)
Coilovers
Possibly a combination of Red and Black Avos, but I dont know if anyone did it.

40mm seems a lot if you want good ride quality. The Eibach will drop it only by 20mm. You might need a set of coilovers, but I am not sure.

just realle depends how low u want, and how harsh a ride u can take. lot of ppl rate the eibach springs with the std zr dampers, but it will not lower too much. o do it rpoperly u need a set of coilovers, as all the suspension companys dont design a suspension kit (dampers and springs) to suit the diesels, so it will always sit abit lower at the fornt end, and give a harsher ride. The problem is the k series is half the weight of a l series, and is hard to get a setup to suit. If your anything lower than 20-30mm would suggest coilovers for a good setup.
