GD3 here; just bought swift springs. What are the best struts to replace OEM?

Hey all, this is my first post since buying a (new to us) 2008 fit sport blaze orange!

I'm looking to tighten up and overall improve the handling of the car now. New tires/wheels will be put on spring of next year, but for now I'm looking to do the springs and struts.

I've purchased the swift springs, however have questions about which struts to match them with.. I'm wanting better than OEM quality, and not a shock/strut that will lower the car any more than the swift spring will. 2 days of the week I carry heavy-ish audio equipment in the car and do not want to rub or bottom out.

So to the point; which struts would you recommend? Kyb's?

Also, I've been reading up on the progress rear sway bar, and noticed some people mentioning the poor fitment with lowering springs. Do the swift/progress rsb have this issue as well?

I realize most of the info in the FitFreak Forums come from a decade ago, and I totally feel like a latecomer here. I appreciate any tips/advice you may have :-)!
