If you're going to go with new shocks and struts you might as well consider a better performing strut to handle the drop and increased spring rate. I recommend bilstein hd's or at least Koni STR.T's. Koni's will be cheaper.

No iso's tend to cause noise. Id say stick with stock if they are in good shape. Like stated above, you will want to consider some rear control arms. Definitely do lowers and remove the quad shocks. Do some research on uppers before you pull the trigger though, many aftermarket upper control arms have poly bushings on the body side that tend to tear up the upper torque boxes(where the arm mounts to the body) due to increased bind brought on by the stiffer bushings. Your stock uppers will perform just fine assuming your upper control arm bushings are in good shape.

You're going to love the H&R's, I wish I bought them before wasting money on other springs.
