strut/shock replacement upgrade to my FRPP kit

It's coming up on time for me to replace my shocks and strruts. As it says in the title I have the FRPP kit installed and as much as I like it, it can bottom out and was really hoping there were some dampers that would work well with these springs that don't bottom out.

Thanks in advance,
PowerFocer

I have the FRPP dampers already. I'm looking for something a bit stiffer that will work with the FRPP springs.

You have a '06+ car so your pretty limited on the dampers that'll work as the '06+ springs have a pigtail at the bottom & the '06+ struts work w/ those springs. The cheapest is to replace your dampers w/ the same frpp's ones. I'd say get the ''Omni kit" & that'd open the door to the popular '00-'05 struts/springs kits. Koni yellows or similar is what your looking for. Just to add, I've upgraded the upgrades too.
