Stock springs / Suspension

Hey guys, I just put 162's on my car today (seen in sig) and since I don't have the sport package, my car is sitting a bit too high for my liking, I'm looking to drop my car about an inch in the back, and 3/4 of an inch in the front, does anybody know if the stock suspension can be adjusted at all?

If it can't, what springs would you guys recommend to get the small drop I'm looking for?

EDIT: Looking at the sport suspension, would I need springs AND shocks to get the drop? And would I need different support bars since my car's an 06?

You could try seeing if anyone has leftover ZSP srings that they want to sell... Thats probably going to be your best bet...

Ive got left over non-sports that found a new home in the trash can. Your car looks nice BTW

I would do the H&R Sport Springs which will give you a modest drop all around and improvement in handling. These are designed for a street setup so they are not overly aggressive or impractical.

The performance suspension will give you a 25mm drop.
