Default good shocks for my honda civic?

i am planning to lower my civic 1.5 inch with Lexani springs, these are good springs but i want good shocks to. i would put the springs over my stock shocks but i think they would blow out the stock shocks. i was thinking about getting these pairs of shocks

what shocks would you reccomend just for street driving with a car that is dropped 1.5 inches and wont be to expensive

For suspension you don't want to go cheap... Or your ride will be bouncy, uncomforatible, and just plan suck. Hence why I would have advised against spring and said you should have gotten a coilover set. But anyway just go for a Koni Yellow shock. Great brand, decent pricing, lifetime warranty.

First thing is dont go cheap and get springs I personally HATE springs to lower a car, they cost about 200ish and then you need to buy shocks so it wont blow. Just get suspension kits and camber kits.

Get a set of coilovers ranging about 500 - 1500 dollars and camber kits that will go for 200 - 500 dollars.

Koni and Tokico are both great brands, that consistantly make high quaility products. However they are both fairly pricey...

The best budget Shock I can think of is probably KYB.
