Shock/Spring setup

So currently I am riding on skunk2 Sport shocks with an unknown set of lowering springs(the car belonged to my father and for some damn reason he cant remember what springs he threw on it). I couldnt see any writing on them, i just know they are blue, if that helps which i doubt. I threw on the skunk2 shocks in the beginning of May. The ride feels really really bouncy, I feel every little dip and its starting to get really annoying. Could it be that the springs just dont ride well with the shocks or is it the shocks? should i keep the shocks and maybe get some skunk2 coilovers to match or just swap both things? ive read that ground control coils and koni yellows are a really good setup. Right now its dropped 2in but id like to go another .5in. I am looking for a comfortable ride since its my DD but with some good handling as well. Also, what should i be looking into if im hearing a squeaking noise while making a right turn kinda fast?started happening recently. Any feedback will be appreciated, thanks

The car is a '94 Honda civic dx coupe

Bouncy as in an old Cadillac (soft) or bouncy in a harsh way (jarring)?

Koni and Ground Control is an excellent setup and one of the more popular ones.

Re: Shock/Spring setup

it feels pretty harsh at times. almost feels as if the springs are decompressing more than it should be or something like that. everytime i hit a dip the front left side makes a loud creaking sound
