FYI. If you lower the rear below 660mm(from lower wheel lip thru wheel center to top of wheel arch) you are risking the stock axle boots splitting. Also suspension travel may be limited (bind) if you were to incounter a large bump.

Coilovers would be the way to get there, but Like rockrau said, you don't want to go too low or you'll run into axle and suspension geometry issues. I'd stick to about 1.5" or less - Preferably 1.25 or less. Or you could go with Air suspension, so you can park and dump it and then drive around at a reasonable height.

Best regards,
