Shock/strut help

Hey guys, I am looking to replace the shocks/struts on my '09 coupe but all I seem to be finding are OEM replacements...does anyone have any suggestions? Not looking for anything too crazy because it is a dd, just something to wake up the handling a little.

The Koni STR.T's are firmer than the stock, but won't rattle your teeth out.

im having the same issue and everytime i place an order for something else i actually do find they are sold out or havent had them in stock for a year...
would the FRPP be a direct bolt on and work well with H&R springs?

FRPP's dampers will work w/ a 1.5'' drop springs. What H&R springs do you have? Have you tried hitting up Jillian @ tirerack?
