You would need these:
http://www.meganracing.com/products/...d=458&catid=44

Me, ranger_mclaren, & SvviftSVT has them. I am sure that other members on here have them too. I would recommend them, they ride very nice, especially if you pair them up with some KYB's

On the 00 - 05 it gives a 2" drop, suspension changed in 06 so now for yours they would give you a 1.5" drop

yeah, they are an approximate 2" drop. so are sportlines. but if were talking 2.5"...
in reality, a 2" drop is the best drop for our cars. performance wise. anything lower is only for looks.

I got the KYB-AGX adjustable gas shocks/struts. You get 4 levels of ride quality(from soft to firm) on the struts and 8 levels on the shocks. It's a nice feature if you Auto-X. I like it cause I have my DD setting and I got a setting for Blazin the Twisties. Even on the softest setting, it is still quite a bit firmer than stock.

I have no knowledge of suspension, I just got what was recommended to me by several other members, all I know is you can do better or worse depending on how much $$ you want to spend.
