Coilovers vs Shocks

Do you buy shocks and coilovers together or separate? I have an '05 Acura TL and I need to replace my front shocks soon. I was considering Koni Yellows but I was wondering if I should buy some Tein SS coilovers instead. Any advice would be great!

if you get coilovers. you don't need shocks. if you buy shocks, then you would need springs as well. unless your just changing your shocks only. It depends on what your trying to achieve. I have heard no complains on Tein SS coilovers, my buddy has those on his ua7, and it rides smooth and really lowers his car. I recently just installed shocks with lowering springs and I cannot complain either. rides smooth af. Only problem is, Its kind of bouncy on potholes and crappy roads.
