Anyone have a 08/09 Coupe lowered?

I just bought a 09 SES Coupe. My 01 ZX3 has 140,000 miles so my wife & I decided to get a new one. It looks like it's a 4X4. Anyone lowered one yet and if so, what springs did you use? Eibach says it only loweres it 1.2" which I don't think will be enough. Ford Racing says there's are 1.5". Let me know what you got!! Pics would be helpfull as well. I will try & post a pic of my new one.

Here's the pic of my 4X4!!!!LOL

Focus Sport's SEMA car. It might be a bit extreme for most people, but it's worth a drool.

I don't know much about the Focus Sport cars, and you can search for BradWhite's posts. H&R coilovers if I remember right.

That SEMA Car is bad ass! The wheels look like they are like 14". I will search for Brads car. I don't need to be slammed as much as the SEMA car.
