safest way to lower it wouldn't be cheap, "arm and a leg" has a different setting for everyone, what do you consider paying to much for suspension?

FE5 Shocks/Strut package is about 360ish after taxes&shipping from CED, i dont recall that's a start. Rock Auto also sells them, make sure to purchase the right part number
Cobalt FE5 Struts and Shock Pkg FE5-S

SSC springs have a very positive rep, and give a nice drop. ZZP isn't the only place to buy them im just linking for reference.
