At three inches with front MacPherson struts the behaviour of the front dynamic roll centre and bump steer does weird and not-so-wonderful things to the handling. Suspension mods to correct this may not be available for 9xx series cars, so you'd better do some research first.

i want to run 16" but prolly gonaa be on the stock 15's for a while. And i found some Ebiach lowering springs but it says only a garunteed 1.2 inch drop. Just not sure it will be good enough. and i also need to find struts to go with it.

Here's one source that may apply to your car: http://www.kaplhenke.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=category§ionid=3&id=19&Itemid=34. And here's something for roll centre correction: http://www.kaplhenke.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=85&Itemid=33. It's for a 240 but you may be able to use it with some modification or maybe you could get something similar fabbed for your car. OTOH, you may be able find something specifically for your car with a little searching. Another issue with lowering which could need adjusting is the pinion angle, and this site should be of help here: http://www.hotrodhotline.com/taxonomy/term/100
