I have a 1" drop with lowering springs and Bilstein B6 shocks all around on my Regal.
The shocks made a huge difference when I went to 17" rims.

Choice is already made, but I love the B6 in my Regal. Soaks up iowa potholes with grace and are as said night and day from the shitty parts store Gabriel Ultras I had before. Idk if it's just me but winter seems to kill cheap shocks. They just never feel the same after they get to -30.

The rear tires are 295/55R15 MT Drag Radials and I believe the rear springs are UMI 2" lowering springs

I have poly bushings all around and poly body mounts and I have never heard a squeak. I am pretty happy with the suspension and have B6s as well. I’ll never go back to a cheap shock.
