Easy. Do you like the ride height? If so just measure the spring height buy some good sport shocks to match the shock travel if you have no intentions of really beating the car on the track.
If you dont like the ride height and prefer ride comfort, either go OE or aftermarket with stock specs.

You will get allot of mixed replies about brands and types, it will bascially comes down to what you like and what you want to spend.

Bilstein or Koni shocks, H&R or Eibach springs are the more popular ones, though some people have been using APEX allot more lately.

We have a FK Hi-Tech kit availible for your car. $775.00 buys you struts and springs 35-40 or 60/40mm ride heights. These come with a lifetime warrenty. The struts/shocks are designed for the springs drop.
