The Monroe's are an OE replacement shock and are not designed or intended to handle or be used with the reduced travel and increased spring rates of a lowering spring. They'll result in lousy handling and fail pretty quickly. A shorter stiffer spring requires a shorter firmer shock. It's not an area to cheap out on. The problem you'll find is that there aren't to many shocks available for the 06+ Focus espcially when you want to go really low.
