tein s.tech are known to be pretty soft. I guess if you want a lower ride, without sacrificing ride quality and don't care too much about performance, you can run those. Be carefuly though as there are a lot of fake teins floating around.

H&R sports (black) are a good balance of both performance and comfort. It would be better if you upgrade from stock shocks though. H&R race (red) offers the lowest out of all of them and are the stiffest. Definitely need new shocks for these. Something like KYB AGX, Tokico Illumina, or Koni Yellow (the best out of the 3)

well assuming they haven't been replaced, I wouldn't trust 17yr old shocks to last with lowering springs. You could run them if you want, but it's going to ride like shit compared to new shocks. If you want some cheap, but decent shocks, check out Koni's new STR.T shock. I would stay away from kyb gr2 or tokico blues.

people have different experiences with placing lowering springs on stock shocks. i've had friends who drove around for years and years with no problems. other people have blown their shocks within a year, so it's hit and miss. the proper route is to replace your shocks before lowering but if you don't care about them, lower it and see how it goes.

also, blown shocks would give you a valid reason for buying new ones down the road.
