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.
