Default audi a4 suspension upgrade

Hi guys i have an audi a4 2003 3.0 quattro, i want to lower my car by about 1 inch in the front and 0.7 in the back, ive been told that if i change just the springs i will have to replace the shocks in about 5 k miles. So im thinking of getting a full kit. I dont really race that much but i want it to be a little bit stiffer but not like im riding in a car with square wheels and feel everything single bump. Any recommendations on what brand should i get and what do i have to do? Maybe theres something else i have to change?
Thanks.

if you change spring you don't need to change shocks..but if you will.. check eibach they have a full set up..

if not try nuespeed sport (stiff yet not as stiff as race) for springs and shocks go with kyb's or eibach or tokico

i would also look into getting the S4 suspension..
