2018 HFP Shocks?

According to this article the new HFP Fit has much more aggressive springs and shocks over the stock ones:

I've really been hoping to find an OEM-type shock that would pair well with my Swift Springs on my '15 Fit (it gets a little bouncy in the rear), and I wonder if this might be the answer.

It probably gets bouncy because they're blown? Stock suspension on lowering springs usually = eventual blown shocks/struts. The stock suspensions is not going through its intended range of motion once lowered.

There's a few threads here already about people using 2nd gen Koni orange with good results, mine are sitting in the garage waiting for enough time to install them.

They are available already, shocks and springs look to be about $650.

I would like to know if it's possible to purchase the shocks without the springs (would prefer to run Swift springs for a little more drop. 10mm vs 25mm) from the dealership. Forgot to ask when I was there earlier this week =/

This may be a bit of a noob question but would these parts work with the 2015 Fit EX 6MT? At the College Hills Honda website they’re listed as 2018. They have the 2015-2017 as a separate category. Wheels and suspension kit look very appealing. This is probably for a different thread but also considering the progress rear sway bar.
