I hope you have struts to match...
Ground control coilovers would be a good start.
Eibach sportlines are 1.7 up front and 2.3 in the rear.... close enough? (I have a set for sale)

2 inches from just springs is a big drop... you'd probably be better off looking for a set of coilovers.

Yes. It isnt safe to lower on stock struts.

The valving inside the struts is not correct for the higher spring rates of lowering springs. They will give you a crappy/unpredictable ride and will blow out prematurely. Which has lead to people totaling their cars. Thankfully innocent drivers/bystanders havent been hurt yet(that i have heard of on this forum).

Goldline springs are another good option. Ran that 100 shot of nitrous yet?

I never said the KWs were bad. Just that they are not popular with us. For what reason, i dont know.

Yeah I bought mine used and they were pretty bad. They've held up fine after applying some ospho and lots of enamel
