Tokicos are badass and they have a line of shocks the HTS series that are actually shorter than the standard shocks so you will get full susension travel.
Suspension travel is the key to good handling and long life of the shock.The HTS's are also adjustable, They are a good setup for someone just getting into suspension tuning.
Koni als has good shocks. for about the same price round 600 for the set.
If you wanna go more radical and your not going to drive the car everyday Id go for full coilovers. The issue with coilovers why they are rough on the street is that the spring rates you get on most of them are too high, but you can call the company and they will send you custom rates and alot of companies like TEIN and KW sell coilovers specifically for street cars. plan to pay 1200+ for this setup but its so worth it. You will have to spend quite a bit of time tweaking it after you get it to get the car to handle at its most optimum. (thats of course subjective)
Another thing you absolutely must have are camber plates, that radically changes the handling of your car, more camber = more response, more traction in turns but reduced tire life and braking performance because you have a smaller contact patch when the wheel is straight. (note coilovers come with these built in for mcpherson strut cars, and might come with a seperate upper control arm for double wishbone cars)
I used to run -2 in my AE86 was taking corners above 90mph making miatas look like oldsmobiles
