for the best ride the struts/shocks will have to be valved the same or in a given range to "match" up correctly.
Did you cut the springs or did you replace them with aftermarket ones? You will need to know the spring rate before you can determine what shocks/struts will work best.
Also you will need caster camber plates, I recommend maximum motorsports 4 bolt design as they allow more adjustment for alignment specifications as well as they allow the strut shaft to come back up higher to offset the lowering effect on the strut shaft.
The lowering effect is as you lower the the car the top of the strut shaft cant go up higher with the stock caster/camber plates so more of the strut shaft is pushed into the strut all the time vs before the car was lowered. This over time can wear out the strut and will wear it out faster.
By allowing the strut shaft to come back up some you help offset this issue, its not some massive issue just something to be aware of as you will need a way to align the car anyway so this can do two things at once for you.
Tokico blue's work good or Mach 1 specific tokicos for springs with a rate 500-600~ and are usually under 200 a set of 4.

Many people say Bilsteins are the best. They are good shocks and struts especially for an overall ride (not for drag though). They are on the expensive side and will most likely be what I will get when I have the extra cash.
