Yeah! Just buy lowering springs and replace your stock springs.Your car will looks much better and handling will improve too.You be able to take a sharp turns at the higher speed...
P.S.Eibach springs www.Modacar.com Lowest prices you can find.
P.P.S. Do not buy "No name" Springs! They are very cheap and very shitty.

if you stuck with stock rims then yes...but it would end up costing about 1k more than the springs.

yeah...and have it painted and installed.

body kit- 600 (for cheap knock off) - 3500 (for widebody)
paint and install - 600 - 900. It seems like your not very experienced so you'll need a shop to do all the work for you
