You're welcome. And if you are really in the dark, I understand it's a bit daunting to know what to search for. For only a 1" drop, consider new springs and a set of dampers (shocks & struts) to match. A lot of people here like Eibach, or H&R for springs and either Koni or Bilstein for the dampers.

My car is on H&R race springs and Bilstein sport dampers.
