i have tenzo r's 2" front and 2.5" in the back. and a shop we probably charge a few hundred to do the job. You can always do it yourself, it's not hard.

i kept the same shocks and struts. just gotta watch out for stuff a little more other than that you will be fine. it makes the ride more stiff too. make sure to get an alignment also.

if they have an alignment machine make sure to tell them that. but if it's a good shop they will recommend it for you. I had to adjust my toe inward after i put my springs in.

as you lower the car the tie rods lose some of their angle causing the toe to go outward. that is why it needs to be checked. and the camber might possibly be off too but mine was still within spec.

nothing other than being a little more careful not to hit stuff while you are driving. it's easy to do and the alignment is just a good thing to do so you don't wear out your tires. if you want your car lower it's worth it and easy to do with springs. it's also the cheapest route when doing it the correct way.
