Default Shock and Coil ?uestion

I have a Del Sol and I want to lower the car by 2" in the front and 1.75" in the back. I'll be using this car to drive myself to and from school everyday and occasionally on weekends I'll do road coarses. Can anyone suggest a compromising setup?

300 max. I've searched around on sites and it seems like the only thing really expensive are all 4 shocks. I've found coils that range from 100-150. So yeah...

Oh man, 300 max is gonna be hard as hell putting together a setup thats decent. Springs will likely run around $125-150 for a ride that doesnt bounce you to death and struts will be at least $200 for kyb, konis, or tokico. And finding springs with a drop like that reduces your candidates by a little more. I'm dropped at what your goal is, maybe a little more, but everything i have is adjustable.

If you wanna do it right, I'd say you havta spend a little more. $400 for a good nonadjustable setup is what I think. Plus with that drop, you're gonna be suffering from camber wear in the front for sure. Correcting that's gonna be another $100.
