mate it will be bouncy and the life of ur shocks will be considerably shortened but if ur doin it just for looks then its cool. i wouldnt advise trackdays or fast road drivin with it though. you and your car will crash and burn

Use the Gmax shocks designed for the springs, the shocks that are used on the 35/40mm kit are the same.

Plus trust me, your better off fitting 60mm on the rear, 40mm on the front.
