    I would like to upgrade the shock absorbers on my 2000 Honda Civic Type R. What brand should I go for? A friend told me to go for Bilstein shocks. Any other recommendations?

    What other brands you got access to in your country? Bilstein is a good brand.

    Depends what your budget is and what you'll be using the car for.
    Bilstein make very good suspension.
    If you just want a shock absorber replacement there's not an awful lot out there compared to coilovers.

    Other options if you can find a set are Mugen and Spoon shocks (they come with springs)
    I've used Koni shocks with Eibach springs on my Integra and it drove brilliantly on the road with them .

    I have Monroe reflex shocks very comfortable and handle very well
