Google "eibach sportlines cobalt" or "H&R Cobalt"

Those are some good springs if you're just looking to lower the car.

Good luck!

B&Gs (2.0", 2.75")
H&Rs (2.0", 2.5")
SSC (1.5", 2.0")
Tenzo R (2.25", 2.5")

Theres plenty others, but those are the ones worth ur money and that will last

just a noob question, those measurement values listed, are they the amount of inches that your car will be lowered, or are they the amount of wheel gap you will have after lowering?

Measurements are what your car will be lowered.

they are the amount of wheel gap that you will lose, so basically how much farther down ur car will sit. but keep in mind that those are all manufacturers ratings, and vary from car to car depending on other suspension components. for example, my SSCs lowered like 1.75" and 2.0" and my current B&Gs lowered 2.3" and 2.75".

o and first number is front and second is rear
