how much do you want to drop your car by? There are different manufacturers of springs with different drop height and spring rate.

Coilovers but remember you get what you pay for so don't cheap out.

I used Vogtland's with stock shocks and struts and got a good drop :)

depends what kind of drop, the ride your looking for and your budget. If your gonna do lowering springs, make sure you get some shocks that can handle the road. They will blow out very easily. Coilovers are not cheap.

If you are trying to stay less than $600 I would recommend Street Edge Coilovers (Review Link Here). These will be much better than most spring/shock setups in the price range and better than cheaper coilovers.

$800-$1000 range I would recommend ST Suspensions. ST offers a 5 year warranty, comfortable ride for daily driving, good lowering heights and its made by KW.

$1100+ range I would recommend KW V2s. This model from KW will offer you height and rebound adjustments. Stainless steel body to within stand weather elements, limited life time warranty.

There are a few different ways to lower your car, just depends on your budget and what you are expecting from your suspension.
