Your rear looks lower than usual. Might be the pic. Front looks stock

That's stock sport springs for you, mines looked like that when I bought my car.. rear looked lower and the front was just like that, I bought coilovers and i've been happy since

With those rims I say a 1" drop with be good in the front or 1.2"

If you drop it and add spacers, it'll do!

Yeah it will. Lowering a car will lessen spring travel which can result in a shit storm if you hit a bad enough pothole. You can check out an earlier thread of mine where I hit a pothole an it totally wrecked the front right suspension of my car. But I'm not trying to scare you, you have to be pretty unlucky for this to happen to you. Just remember low=slow. And also keep an eye out for potholes. Anyways, definitely lower your car. Every car needs a drop IMO.
