GR2's are OEM replacement and are not designed for lowering springs. It will work, but it's not a good idea.

they're stupid cheap because they're OEM replacements. When you get down to more lowering friendly shocks (ie. koni yellows as iRomey mentioned) that's when it gets pricier.

Do yourself a favor and invest a little more your car and your butt will thank you when you get a nicer ride with a lower stance.
