What to Buy?

I just put on some 17' MSR rims and now my wheels gap is even bigger. I was to lower my 08 LT by about 2 inches without sacrificing ride performance. what would be the best springs, struts and shocks to buy. Also, if i need anything else or dont need something please tell me.

THANK YOU!

Sportlines X2. Haven't done shocks and struts yet but I'm thinkin koni. Is your entire wheel and tire set up larger than it was with the old wheels and tires? Because thatll make you sit higher.

2006 LS coupe, tint, 18'' DR9 wheels, Eibach Sportlines, 12'' rockford sub w/600w rockford comp amp, alarm and so much more to come.

I'm going to most likely get the sportslines, not the coilovers, (too expensive). but what about shock and struts? also is a sway bar worth getting?
