You could also buy CM springs they are the exact same and usually cheaper.

Should be a bigger drop for an lt because the cobalt ss rides a little bit lower than the standard cobalt.

Don't forget to upgrade your shocks and struts when moving to lowering springs, as the stock FE1s would be strained and prone to failure from the drop. FE5s (from the SS/TC) and Koni Yellows are two very good options you might consider.

How much will it cost for the new shocks and struts?

depends if you just buy the shocks and struts your looking at little over 300. Then you can just reuse your bumpers seats etc. I just went all out and got new everything so I think I dropped like 450 on RockAuto. If you do just get FE5 shocks and springs RockAuto was cheaper than CED.
