After reading the following I decided to wait and save up for new stiffer struts to go with my lowering springs. http://www.koni.com/_cars/frame.html
"The use of lowering springs requires special damping characteristics: the mere application of stiffer springs together with ordinary shock absorbers often has a negative impact on road-holding and comfort, and may even lead to dangerous situations."
And this from SportCompactCar's site about their 2K Project Celica: http://www.sportcompactcarweb.com/projectcars/0106scc_projcelica/
"We accomplished our goal of good looks with a set of Progress springs, but without stiffer shocks, we could do nothing about the lack of damping. Riding lowered on the stock shocks, the car felt slightly disconnected--like it was hovering a few inches above the ground. All too frequently, however, our hovercar would seem to scrape the ground as it crashed into the bumpstops. Despite rear springs that were proportionally stiffer than the fronts, the car seemed to lose its playful handling with the lower springs as well. This is, unfortunately, pretty normal for a car with lowering springs.

Just wanted to post this in case somebody was contemplating the same thing I was and they read this thread.
If youre just going for looks springs alone are fine, if youre concerned about handling as well then upgrade springs and struts.
Sure, coil-overs would be best, but too much money for me at this point in time.
