Lowering Springs with Most Drop?

If the title dosent make sense sorry.lol. But when i get my tax returns i plan to get some things for the balt. One of the things i was wanting to get was a set of lowering springs and i wanted to know which ones would give me the best drop. I also have a friend that dose a ton of suspention work so i can cut a coil off of them if need be. But which ones give me the best drop what kind and how much of a drop do they give?


Thanks.

I purposely down shift when i pass a prius so they can hear me hurting the environment.

well if you want lowest drop.. get either b&g's (and cut one coil out of the front to prevent reverse rake) or get sportlines

sportlines arent really that low.

b&gs and H&Rs give the lowest drop.

reverse rake is not so bad...but after a while, like me, you kinda get annoyed of it. I want to cut one coil off each front spring, but the roads here are REALLY, really quite bad so I'm debating wether to do it or not :S any suggestions ppl?
