In Hypercoil, a 2.5" id you will have to go with a 7" spring as the rates in a 6" are too high for your car.
OK, so if you are considering changing springs, then NOW is the time to find out what the rear springs are also. Not to change the rear, but to try and make sure that what you put up front is a good match for the rear. This is of most importance as far as I am concerned, more so then "matching" what is on the front now. They may very well end up being a good match, but now would be the time to find out. Someone here suggested that maybe your fronts are 9K/mm which is about a 500 lb/in rate. I would then hope that your rears are stiffer, but I have the feeling they may not be as most companies don't dare go over 500 lbs in their "Kits",
Not sure a 7" spring will get you as low as you want.
Just another thing to think about. You need to make other adjustments to your suspension when lowering. Mostly in your rubber bushings.
