03 FX45 suspension goes bad?

I have an 03 FX45 and I noticed the suspension goes bouncier and harder over time, almost no difference than my 350Z now. I know they are supposed to be a sport suspension, but man, I think shocks are blown on most of them.

My question is, should I replace the shocks with these:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/KYB-4-GR ... ccessories

Anyone has replaced the OEM with those KYB GR-2? Any noticeable difference?

Based on my research, there should be different parts between FX35 and FX45 but the spec they attached cover both, so not sure if this going to work.

Any better idea to solve this? I wanted to go with BC coils since they are adjustable but price is so much higher, so will not go that route for now.

Let me know what you guys think. Thanks!!

The kyb are an oem replacement but the best investment will be in the bc coilovers or the megans. The ride is like night and day and well worth the price. I did the oem replacement and it was okay but i was alsoon eibach springs, really wasn't any different than taking the ride back to a stock feel, but if you want that good firm not too harsh feeling then you are going to have to spend some money.
