Looking for spring solution, just the fronts and similar to stock feel

Howdy, I'm interested in lowering my front by only about 1/2 inch and I'd like the springs to be similar to stock, a little firmer is fine. Is there anything out there that is a very mild drop and similar firmness to stock?

Do the perches affect ride quality or NVH at all?

They shouldn't affect ride quality. I'd go for perches if I was in your position

Someone in another thread said they rattled and clanked around no matter how they tried to adjust them. I don't think I could handle the NVH increase.
