peformance shocks would definitely help....but what did you expect anyways after lowering your car?!? regardless of what type of springs you get, you'll experience a lot more 'bounciness' than compared to the stock setup.

My suggestion before and after new shocks is to:
1. avoid all bumps, sewers, pot holes, etc. as much as possible
2. Go SLOWLY over any speed bumps or bumps in the roads.

Once you lower your car, you really can't drive it the way you did when it was stock....or atleast you shouldn't. There really isn't much you can do eitherwise.

You just answered your own question. Your shocks are toast! You'll need new ones. Anything you do at this point other than getting upgraded shocks, say KYB AGX, will just be a waste of money.

A lowered car with a good set of higher rate shocks will not be 'bouncy'. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise. There is a difference between bouncy and stiff.

Not true, I can drive my car exactly the same way I did when it was stock, except i can now take turns faster. With a good, quality set of springs and dampeners you shouldn't have any bounciness in your ride, it should feel more stiff, or more planted to the ground, but most definitely not bouncy.

Cut springs are bouncy, good aftermarket springs shouldn't be. There's a huge difference between the two.....

Justin's right, the ride should be stiffer once you lower your ride, not bouncy....

When I said "you can't drive your car the same as you did when it was stock", I think what I really meant was that driving your car over a bump on a lowered car isn't quite the same as compared to a stock suspension - you will feel the bumps a lot more with the lower, stiffer ride.

Take Jason's advice and get some good shocks.

You won't necessarily feel more bumps. It depends upon a number of factors and bottoming is a major one. If higher rate springs keep the suspension from bottoming it can actually ride better.

My car is pretty smooth, but I want to raise it a bit in the front (need longer springs) and some Koni bumpstops. Should be sweet then.
