Most people use the Eibach Pro-Kit.

If you only want to go an inch then look at the Steeda Ultralite.

Go to the thread with all of the pictures and you can see all types of drops.

i have the steeda ultralites and i love them. they get rid of the fender gap and 4X4 look, and they don't slam the car too far to the ground so that the front scrapes. (i haven't updated my sig since i got them just so you know)

+1 on what Tampa said. The Steeda Ultralites are highly recommended. I have heard and seen nothing but good results.

Thank-You I will look into those Steeda Ultrlights. They dont lower a GT more than 1" then? Will lowering reduce the life of shocks struts? My GT has 40k miles on it...

OP, if you are putting the Steeda's on, you will be fine with your stock struts and shocks. You shouldn't need an adjustable panhard bar either. The only thing I recommend replacing is your strut mounts.

Check out the Handling Section all kinds of opinions on there. I think I'm going with the Ultra Lights and Koni SRTs. I think that if you have the money do both at the same time instead of pulling it apart twice.
