H&R Sport. You'll need new dampers at the same time, go with Bilstein Sport.

The Cup Kit will slam your car. It is not what you want. I have the cupkit on my car.

Expect to pay no less then $600(US) to properly lower your car. You cannot just install lowering springs with the factory shocks/struts as they will blow out quickly being forced to work outside the range they were designed to.
