even with lowered springs your just asking to blow your struts, because the spring rate is still different and you run the risk of bottoming out the strut.

its plenty of work to take it all out and cut the springs, and you can get raceland coilovers for about 300 bucks, and sit it however low you want it and still ride decent.

i know cut springs are free, but fix it right while your in there, it will be worth it in the long run.

my 2 cents
