An inch and a half is a good drop for the Sol. Some will say more, a few like me prefer stock height... but whatever floats your boat. As for how much... Depends on how much you care about the effects lowering it. First off, you want springs that are progressive (At least, I think that's the term... Basically, their strength is exponential. They start out a bit soft but as they compress the get a lot stiffer.) You could probably spend from $150 for crappy springs to over $1k. If you couldn't care less about ride comfort, you could just put blocks to hold the frame up where you want it and use a blowtorch to soften the springs and let them drop. People have actually done that... :crazy:
