Which Springs for my Skyactiv?

Here's my car. I have 18x8 RX-8 wheels with 225/40/18 tires. I want to lower it with springs but cant decide which ones. I have to drive the car everyday to work on the interstate. 45 mile commute one way. So nothing too extreme. But I want it to look good. any suggestions? I was originally thinking Eibach Porkit springs but now im considering the CorkSports. Eibach is 1.0-1.5" drop Corksport is 2.25" in front 1.75" in rear. what you guys think?

i'm dropped about 1.25" on mazdaspeed accessory springs (pretty much the same as pro-kits) and i've scraped driveways (I have a gv lip) and literally bottomed out with a carload of people. i'd be severely limited with 1" less clearance.

that's just me. if you don't drive with the car loaded full of adults, it may not be a big deal.
lower looks better imo.
