Default suspension for my 96 ek....need help

whats better for my 96 civic ek? both my rear shocks are shot so im going to buy a new suspension kit instead of just replacing the shocks....also i want to bring my ride up a bit, seems to low and bumps and potholes r killing me

these are my choices, i want something not too expensive for now but that will last and do the job...

I have OEM CTR springs/shocks on my Si and I think they're well worth it. The spring rates are a LITTLE lower than USDM ITR (250 f/r compared to 235ish f/r for CTR, max). Handling is much improved, the ride is far from bumy or bouncy, compared to my friend's w/ coilovers. A buddy of mine has OEM ITR springs on stock LS shocks and the ride is a little softer, probably bc of the shocks.

Sorry, should've been more specific. Yes, I got them used from a CSi member about 1 year ago this month

Next to the Falken Azenis, the CTR suspension is the most worthwhile upgrade IMO. I'm looking for an ITR/Beaks rear sway bar kit next.
