Default lowering update

I have pretty much found out that the only way to lower my 2000, is to get custome springs from http://www.coilsprings.com/. My question is.... I dont want to have to do any really extensive work underneath the car after I lower it. I want to be able to take it to a shop to get the susp. re-aligned and back to how it should be.

How far can I lower my 2000 without having to make adjustments that a shop couldnt do? .5", 1", 2inches? what do you guys think? I would be happy w/only an inch, but does anyone know for sure.

there is no real way to know for sure, because it hasnt been done.. i would say that a one inch drop should be able to aligned with stock adjustments
