I have a bone stock 06 si and I'm looking to get some new shocks, but I want to try something different from OEM so I was wondering what other options are out there
Looking for something that still going to provide a good quality comfort but will give it a little better performance or something.
Never really done any mods before so I appreciate the help

I got a set of KYB when I bought my used 08 Si 3 years ago and they are still running great, they are japanese. Monroe are also good quality, I would also recommend considering a set of coilover if you plan on lowering your car in the future. Here is a KYB vs Monroe Post, Hope this helps.

I would look into KYB shocks which are a good replacement for oem and comfortable for everyday driving. I actually have a set on my car currently. If your looking for a little more performance but still want something comfortable I would go for Koni STRT orange shocks like Cyrus mentioned.

Kyb is a plus matched with a good set of shocks and you should be good to go for a while. Do research on what shocks to pair the struts with. Altenatively you can go with a decent coil over set up if your interested in lowing or raising the car to your liking.
