Need Suspension Help Please

I have a 2007 Civic Si coupe @ 95k miles. The suspension is totally shot, what would be the most cost effective replacement? I'm really kind of oblivious to what I need here.

From what I gather the front is Struts the rear is Shock? Anyone have any corrective advice here or suggestions on whether I should just go stock or maybe after market?

Called my local dealership they said Rear shocks $120 each and Front struts 172 each.

I was also looking at these, but wasn't sure if this was a full replacement or if I would need additional parts: DSB14-LUAS2 TEIN Basic Damper for 06-up Honda Civic at Andy's Auto Sport

Thanks for the help.

You can get the HFP suspension for about $400 or so if you look around. It would be an improvement over stock, honda reliability, and close to the same price that replacing all the stock parts would be.

I found hfp suspension for 250 on eBay. I am very pleased with it after two years.

Yeah that will bolt right up and you'll even be a little bit lower.
