As long as it isn't a diesel it'll be fine. No new shocks needed.

I'm guessing due to the extra weight of a diesel engine? Though I may be wrong...

Yeah, the extra weight would send the car down another few mm and really put the ride and characteristics off. People don't realise what a difference 5mm can make, I have coilovers on my fez and it makes a lot of difference when I lower it an extra few mm.
