Suspension/lowering upgrade

I'm looking to buy lowering springs for my next mod. My car currently has 88k miles so I'm guessing I should've replaced the struts by now? If not, should I just buy v6 lowering springs or get v8 struts and springs? I know it would be better but I dont track or anything like that and plus it my daily right now so I'm really just looking to lower my car for appearance.

I'd replace all four shocks at 88k, especially on a DD. You could go with the original shocks, or upgrade to the 1LE shocks, or upgrade further to the Bilstein B6's. For springs, I'd stick with the springs made for the V8 as the V8 is a bit heavier than the V6 and the spring rates will be that much higher to compensate.

If you are just lowering for appearance and have to buy new struts anyway... You should look at the lower end coilovers from Megan and BC. It's about the same price and will give you much better adjust-ability for ride height and firmness.
