Stay away from the sport lines go with the prokit ones. While they do drop you a lot the spring rate is pretty soft. Here is a link to the many different brands and the specs on them like the spring rates HERE and some more HERE

Oh wait forgot you had a 2012. Right now the selection is no where near as big as the previous gens. You have a few options but mainly it boils down to price, how much of drop, and what you really want it to do.

Sounds like the Ford Racing Performance parts suspension is exactly what your looking for. It will come with everything you will need. That's assuming that the new kit for the 2012's are similar to the previous kits.
