Alright I am gonna be a super noob right now. But if I was to purchase a ST or just a sedan(plans this summer as a second car) can I just buy some lowering springs to drop it 1.5ish inches? I would do it mostly for looks. I think stock they sit way to high.

Ok, done being a noob. : )

Yep. Pretty much every name brand suspension company (H&R, Eibach, Tein, etc) will sell some type of lowering spring. I think Eibach has a set right around 170$ that lowers the front 1.4" and the rear 1/5".
I'm not sure where everyone else buys stuff from, but http://www.tirerack.com/index_w.jsp has a good range of products to choose from and they have pretty fair prices.
