Eibach's will run you about $250. And do the install your self if you have the appropriate tools (most auto parts stores rent spring compresors).

Some dealers are cool and will still warranty your car even if it is lowered. Some dealers are jerks and will say the cause of every problem on your car is because it is lowered
