2009 GT Convertible, better handling and stance

We have a 2009 GT Convertible (Auto) with about 5k miles. It's my wife's daily driver. She loves it except that she's not big on the super soft suspension setup (coming from a 2006 Evolution MR). She would like it lowered maybe an inch or so for looks, as well as a little bit more confident suspension - something that she can take an on ramp with a decent amount of spirit.

We are not looking to sink 5 grand into it, or make a track car out of it, just some mildly improved handling with the side benefit of closing the fender gaps just a bit.

Any advice? I was planning on just picking up some pro-kit springs from TireRack, but in the searching I have done today, you have to concern yourself with things like pinion alignment. This is all kind of new to me. I've swapped lots of springs etc on other cars I have owned, but I do want to make sure I'm not messing anything up here.

All advice appreciated!
