Standard shocks are absoutely fine with super lows. as long as the spring doesnt rattle when the shock is extend and tightened.
and there alot easier to fit, no spring copressors required for installation.

Oh so u dont need new shocks straight away, the stock are ok.. Now im getting superlows anytime soon. Though in my case i have the camber kit, so the wear of the front tyres will be normal and nice.
And like people have said, with superlows at least get a camber kit, cos the inside of ur tyre will wear pretty uneven.
