shocks

hey i bought a 99 prelude type sh and i had some question. Who ever owned the car before me had lowered it but if i hit a lil bump on the road it sounds like it is breaking apart like if their is no shocks. I really like the look that my car has. their is a couple of preludes in town and they all look the same. i like the look that my car has. so i was wondering what kind of shocks i can buy that wont do that. i want to lower it about a inch or inch in half. What should i buy or do you guys have any sugestions?

Re: shocks

it's possible it's not the shocks, in detail what does it sounds like, btw if you search suspension you might find your answer.

Re: shocks

Well it sounds like if I didn't have any shocks. Like if it was metal on metal. But just when I hit a dip or a hole on the road.
