Shocks shot, might as well lower it. Suggestions? Personal Experience?

So finally the stock shocks on my Ludey went out. Hits bumps really hard so I'm replacing them. I wanted to lower my car so this is the perfect time to do so. What do you guys recommend, what do you use? I'm still not 100% sure how the lowering process works (I've been reading for a while) but I know I would need all 4 shocks and springs. I was looking at konis, but is there anything comparable that doesn't cost as much? Btw my Lude is currently a daily driver so I would need it to be a comfortable ride. Also I live we're it snows so I am looking to get a adjustable suspension. Thanks for your help guys.

P.S I might lower it next weekend while I'm doing my 5 Speed swap ;)

i love my lowered lude. i have it on koni yellows and neuspeed race springs. the car is pretty low and would go lower. with a front lip on your car you will scrape it going into some driveways

I've got Function & Form Type One coilovers, got them for $550 shipped from Weksos... My only complaint is the rear springs are too soft. Aside from that, they're great for a DD you want to lower.
