Best Struts/Shocks to go with Eiback Pro-Kit on 1999 Accord Sedan??

Hey, new to these boards, but i'm getting Eiback Pro-Kit Springs for my Sedan, and i was wondering what the better sets of struts to compliment the springs were. Tein? Tokico? Others? also, since the Pro-Kit is a 1.5" drop, will it be necessary for a camber kit, or more to the point, how much will my tire wear increase if i don't get one? Thanks in advance for any help.

cdubb77 is somewhat reliable
Welcome to the forum. No camber kit needed for that minor drop. KYB GR-2 Shocks.

KYB GR-2's are pretty much stock replacements, next up the list are the Tokico's, at the top are the Koni's.

appreciate it, will probably end up going with the Tokico's, seem like an improvement over stock but a good value at the same time
