I Like my Eibach pro kit for performance
But if you just want looks and don't want the stiffness there are a lot of other cheaper options

Ps when lowering you should also change shocks and struts the springs will drastically shorten the life of your stock ones

For the look mostly I know a lot of people with 2.5 inch drops and it looks sick

How can u get a low drop and still keep the car comfortable?? I know it would be expensive but my last car was really low and it looked so good. Just really uncomfortable!

Springs of your choice. Most are 1.5 lowering or so. Steeda ball joints up front lower another .5 or so. Shocks/struts and CC plates recommended. Also in rear you can do maximum motorsports weight jacker lower control arms and gives you much better traction but also the ability to raises/lower the car at any time with nothing but a 1/2 inch drive ratchet. Or the more expensive route is coilovers

How can you adjust rear coilovers?

Re: Lowering Springs

H&R Super Sports gave me ~2" drop after I left the isos out. There's approximately a 1" gap between the wheel and fender up front on even ground. About 1.5" in the rear (left one iso in).

Love the look but the springs are definitely stiffer. The ride qualilty does suffer to a noticeable degree but if I wanted a smooth ride I'll drive my F150 lol...or buy a Lincoln.

Re: Lowering Springs

"best" is VERY subjective to what you are looking for (handling vs ride quality)

Not true at all!
drop spindles will lower your car in the front 2 inches and not affect the steering geometry at all
It's called having your cake and eating it too
But 600$ for just the front two

600 doesn't seem too bad if it really keeps the ride enjoyable while making it look badass
