from what I heard, springs usually make the car sit lower in the rear. It's the same with my car also

Yes you will need a set of spc front balljoints and a rear camber bolt kit as lowering it that much will wear out tires very fast (ask me how I know)

Btw springs do not settle this is a myth that they do so what you have now is how it will sit 2 years down the road.
