Buy super/ultra lows for 250 odd, install them yourself, keep stock shocks.

Even cheaper, cut a coil or 2 off.

buy some used springs maybe, and new shocks, or atleast near new, fit them yourself, don't forget to get a torque wrench if you don't already have 1 and maybe some cheap spring compressors.

Whether a camber kit is needed I couldn't advise you as I've only lowered my rear to xr height, not gain to go any lower yet, as getting stuck sucks, and it happens to much already.

If you've got a decent pull it yourself wrecker, they might even give you it damn cheap.

only reason i got new shockers was because of how low i wanted to go and one was shot. you can pick up a set of new springs for 250 bucks paying for fitment is the pain in the bum
