Is it strictly the drop you want or are you also looking for more performance? You could look into Tein H-Tech, or Swift springs? Both offer minimal drop.

As far as shocks go I would think Koni STR.t's would be sufficient but I am no pro when it comes to proper shock for spring rates.

Cheapest yet good, Tein H tech as mentionned and continu running your stock shocks unless they need replacement, then Truhart is the best low cost option.

You probably already have the half inch drop

The original springs have probably sagged about that much by now.

Honda offers the HFP kit for about $600 or so that has lowering springs that lower an inch, along with new shocks and struts. The front struts also come pre-assembled. This is probably your best option.

Eibach Pro-kit. Can most likely get away with using stock shocks while giving your car a subtle drop. Installed the prokit on my Mk7 Golf R and it gave it a nicer stance while slightly stiffer ride.
