There are several brands, the two most popular are H&R and Eibach. All the tuners also have springs like Kleemann, Lorinser, Renntech, etc...

I have Eibachs because they preserve the current ride comfort. The H&R's lower the car a little more and handle better but compromise the ride quality a little bit. They typically run about $250 U.S. for a set of 4 springs for either brand. Tuner springs cost a lot more.

If you want to lower it more than about an 4 cm then you'll want a cup kit or coilovers. This is because when you lower it more you'll need the shocks to go with it. Look to spend $700-1,500 for these kits and H&R is a popular brand, Eibach doesn't make these for our car.

Since you are in Canada you are better off getting it there. You can go to Tirerack.com but then you may have to pay duties and it's not worth it. Any good auto supply store, tire or suspension shop can probably order them for you.

Go with H&R if maximum drop and handling are a priority, go with Eibach is ride comfort is a priority. I can't decide that for you. I helped a forum member remove his H&R's from his C32 because he wasn't happy with the ride but he had 18" wheels and AMG suspension so that may have made a difference compared to what you have.
