    Help needed on lowering springs

    I recently picked up a 2005 300C and wanted to change the looks of it. So I put on a set of 20"SRT8 rims on it. Problem is, it's sits as high as a truck and looks silly to me. I want to lower it about 2" all around to give it a more aggressive stance. What springs will do this properly without making it ride like a tank. I do realize that I am taking away from the travel the struts will have from stock ride height, so I'm not looking for a miracle in a box, I know it won't ride the same over bumps. With that being said, please aid me in what you guys are using, and also post a picture of your car with it on if you have one. I would like to see a visual of how it would look like. Before someone says use the search feature. I have tried it 100X and the search feature does not work for what ever reason on my computer using Firefox. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    I recommend coil-overs, stock struts will prematurely fail on lowering springs. Plus you can raise it up a little for winter...
    I'm on street edge coil-overs. Here is my summer and winter ride heights

    Hi Bryan, no I have not done anything with the car as of yet. Since last we talked, I just put a cover over it and parked it for the winter. Just trying to gather some parts to make it look cosmetically appealing. I got some 275/40R/20's for the back and some 245/45R/20's for the front so far to install in the spring. Looking for the lowering springs, the SRT8 spoiler for the back trunk and a lower chin spoiler for the front.
