if you plan on changing your wheels in the future do this before lowering the car, in my ba xr6 running on 19" rims ive got super lows in the rear and lows in the front. also because of this i had to install camber kits front n back to stop my bad a*** tyre wear.
keep in mind when you lower a car to do it properly its recommenced to do 3 things
1. springs -obviously easy can do your self :D
2. shorter shocks - i still haven't done :? will soon lol
3. camber kits - expensive :(

depends which ones your looking at, i got mine fitted from a suspension shop, as i don't have the tools to press in the bushes, not the knowledge on how to muck around with that stuff.
peders wanted to steak my money and asked for over 1k to supply n fit em
jim hunters on the other hand fitted the EXACT same product for 550

as for running your car, of course you can. but you will wear out your tyres quicker (mainly the inner inch).
you'll also need a wheel alignment after each change you do to your suspension.
