Default best shocks for lowered integra

I recently bought a 96 integra and the guy had lowered it using
adjustable coilovers. THis was really hard on the factory shocks and
they are shot.

I need to get new shocks but I know little in the way of the shock. My
car is super bouncy and bottoms out all the time. I want a good shock
that will work with my adjustable coilovers and isn't $$$$.

What should I buy? and how can I stop myself from hitting the roof on
every little pothole I run over?!

Well, shit. I guess those Honda engineers are worth what they're getting
paid, aren't they?

Yo d00d. Plenty of Web-boards to handle the RiCe-b0i shit, dawg. Go ask
there.

Place a piece of foam rubber on your head.

It bottoms out because the car is LOWERED.
That's less suspension travel,the manner by which the car was lowered.
