    You have several choices in brands and types. By types, I mean just fixed springs or adjustable coilovers. The coilovers have the advantage of varying the amount lowered based on your driving type/style. Generally can drop from 1-2 inches in front and 3/4 to 1.5 inch in rear. These figures are against a BASE 6er (non-sport) so if you are already with a sport package then subtrack about 1/2 inch from the above.

    Two brands of coilovers with good reputation are:
    KW Coilover (Varient 3)
    H&R Coilover

    Just plain springs generall lower 1 to 1.2 inch in front (minus 1/2 inch if Sport Package equipped already) and about 1 inch in rear.

    Better brands are:
    H&R
    Eibach
    Dinan

    If you just drop and do not go for wild wheel/tire combos you should have no issues. If you are thinking bigger wheels/tires THEN you may have some issues.

    Keep us posted on what direction you take.
