Lowering springs with stock shocks...

Hello! I was wondering if there would be any negative to using lowering springs with the stock bilstein shocks on a 1992 300E. I am primarily concerned with shock wear and if the car will bounce. I read that cars bounce if you install lowering springs and then don't upgrade to stiffer shocks. I am planning on lowering the car about 1.5 inches with neuspeed springs, thanks!

ok thanks! So, uhhh... does anyone have any new or slightly used front sport struts for a 92 300E they want to sell? These things are $150 a pop otherwise, and that would be all the money I have been saving up...
