Blown shocks - sensible replacement?

Car: 2005 Acura TSX

Just blown out my front struts over a car-eating pothole last week . . . Angry.png
I plan on replacing all four struts-shocks but want to keep the OEM springs and ride height. However, I wouldn't mind trading a bit more handling for comfort. I am getting RSB too but no track days for this baby (have an old Integra for the hooligan stuff Laugh.png). And budget is a bit tight so coil-over setups are out. Recommendations?

Thanks in advance for any first hand knowledge.

I personally would hunt down a set of A-Spec struts/springs... good excuse to upgrade.. but if you want a more cushy drive.. I don't know what to recommend.. keep an eye out for members selling their original TSX suspension bits.
I used Tokico Blues (HR's) on my 04 accord and the ride was ok... ($300 set of 4) not as soft as stock tho
i assume KYB's are in the same boat (same $, similar quality)

Go aspec or go Koni Yellow, or if you wanna spend $50 more get the neuspeed/koni shocks and you can even lower your car a tad ($600 pricetag tho)

toss out a want to buy (WTB) add on here and other acura sites .... im sure you'll get a response relatively quick

GL man
i will sell you all 4 off my car min less than 30k miles on em... for dirt cheap PM me.
front oem shocks: i have one bad front shock & one good front shock. the bad one I threw it to the garbage bin & the good one still sitting in my storage.

i'm not going to ship it, but i can sell it for just $50. the only way that anyone can get this shock is to plan on traveling to Vancouver BC Canada.

Cash & your phone number required, as well as your name, time & date for pickup. Please either post in reply or PM.
I have all 4 oem shocks and spring assemblys with less than 60k and all highway. PM me if you want them, ill give you a great price.

Other wise I would go with Koni Yellows, they offer performance, quality, and an amazing ride.
