What suspension setup would you recommend?

I am presently running on the stock suspension setup on my ES Civic. I would like to upgrade the suspension setup to something that gives me a slightly firmer ride, and more importantly, something which will reduce the `bounciness' caused by the stock suspension. At the same time, I would like to lower the car to about 2 fingers' clearance.

I've noticed that quite a few people here have upgraded their suspension setups. Would be grateful if you could provide some comments on what is recommended, and what is not.

Thanks.

Yeh, I would go with koni yellows with sportlines instead of the pro-kit. The pro-kit kinda look stock

Looks like the konis and the Eibachs are the popular choice. I already have the Modulo kit on my car so I don't really want to lower the car that much. We get quite a lot of road humps over here!

As for the Eibachs, what's the difference in height between the Pro Kit and the Sportlines?
