I want to lower my ride and was wondering which parts of my suspension do I have to change.
Also are they any lowering products recommendations

springs and shocks

springs - H&R and Eibach are the more common ones.
shocks/struts - Koni, Bilstein

or you can always go with coilovers which are height adjustable.

Go with coilovers if you can spare the cash because if you get pulled over for your car being too low, you can fix it right there and avoid the ticket.

I live in LA and I got pulled over for my old Supra TT, cuz it was too low, so I raised the car to the minimum height (measured from the center of the headlights) and avoided the ticket.

I've also gotten pulled over because my "Blow Off Valve was very loud" and I "might have had illegal modifications"

LoL ... i wanna get pulled over because the vacuum effect created by my AFM was to loud. Its sweet, at idle, stab the throttle to max and theres a sudden increase in vacuum makes the sound of a blow off valve. Its quite impressive i must say.

we dont have a problem with being pulled for being too low, but the roads are that crap over here and there are that many speed bumps if your cars to low you end up removing the front of your car.....

you can do that but your stock shocks/struts will wear out much faster.
