Suspension Help!!!

Ok, I am new to this site, and hoping someone can help me. I have a 1992 prelude, when i first got it, the front springs were snapped, i was short on cash, (and extremely stupid) and decided to buy the 13 dollar set of coilovers on ebay. Had them installed about a year ago. Recently it seems that my cars body feels "floaty" in the rear, almost as if its going to slide out on me, but only if im hitting bumps/potholes in the road. and usually going above 45. Im assuming the struts in the back are probably going bad. if this is the case, and anyone agrees with me, does anyone know of a decent set of lowering springs and struts that are not too too expensive? maybe 400-500 range? i was looking at the tokico hp's, they are about 400, but not too sure if they are a good brand? any help would be greatly appreciated. thank you

if the car is bouncing around excessively, then your struts are gone.
tokico, kyb, eibach, or koni all make very good struts.

check out our stance section, there's PLENTY of info on what everyone is running.
