New 18's....how low should I go?

I'm getting 18's next month and I wanted to lower my v6. What do you think would be a good drop for it. Right now I've only looked at 2 types. The ford c springs (I think that's what they were) that drop the front 1.2 inches and the back 1 inch. or the mac springs that drop the whole car 1.5 inches. What do you guys think?

I have 18s and Steeda Sport Springs.

Steeda's are closer to C springs, I believe.

And I rub. In fact, I rubbed with stock springs. 1.5 may be too much.

Ford "C" springs will drop 1.2 evenly with the top dead coil cut off.

c's are teh best for 1.25~ drop and cut the full dead coil on the rear and you get a uniform drop all around. if you keep the same tire diameter over all and run a 245 - 275 mm wide tire with a 5.96~ back spacing you wont have any rubbing issues minus a near full lock.
