Send a message via AIM to whippersnapper02
Probably Billys and stock springs with the Billys set on the lowest setting.

Well, I dont have personal experience w/ either setup, but, I would imagine that a compressed progressive spring has the chance of being stiffer than a linear spring (uncompressed) depending on the linear spring's rate. Additionally, it would depend on the amount you're compressing the stock springs since the more you compress a progressive rate spring, the stiffer it gets (duh). SO, if you compress the stock springs past what the linears are rated at, the stockers will be more unforgiving. Compress it less than the linears, and it'll be more plush over the small stuff, while harsher on the bigger hits.
I know that doesnt narrow down the answer, but imo, too many variables.
