You can lower just the front for looks and worse handling.

You certainly can lower just the front. But if you're looking for improved handling, flat and level will handle better. Most 5th gens are already a little higher in the rear than the front. Dropping just the front will only accentuate that rake even more. We do offer a "raked" (split-drop) spring kit (SP025) that drops the front 1.4" and the rear 1.0".

The SS 5th Gen will plow the north forty off the showroom floor. It understeers badly, though not as bad with the outboard mounted rear sway bar introduced in 2012. Lowering the front transfers more weight to the front tires increasing the load and with the increased load comes even more understeer.

Don't do it.
