Might be lowering my Celi... input please

Well my birthday is this week and I'm looking to possibly lower my Celi. Went to Super Autobach's today to price some stuff. I want Hotchkis springs. They quoted me around $235 for them. They also recommended Tokico struts... which they would have to call on Monday to price.

Is this a good setup, or do I need anything else? Also, what SHOULD these things cost... and what should install be? Thanks everyone.

happy b-day. I got Tokico springs and shocks for $435. Don't know the diffeence between Hotchkiss springs and Tokico. Install was $120. Alignment $68. Had to do he camber myself though because the tire shop that did my allignment was clueless except or factory specs.
