H&R springs, which majority of people here are wearing, is a good brand. If you go up in the search engine at the top, there are a few threads where everyone is doing a comparison on the ride and feel of their 7 being lowered. Good luck with it man and post pics once you get it oging.

I was looking online. H&r springs have a sport or race drop. Which one do you recommend?

They don't come with the self leveling kit. Its the car that has the self leveling kit. If your car has that, they have the springs for the front. If it doesn't, they have them for the front and back.
