AWD and Lowering

My sport compact tuning days are behind least for now. I never thought I'd do this but...I want to go VIP; specifically with an AWD car. My budget allows for one of the following:

1) Acura RL: '05 - '12
2) Infiniti G/M/Q50
3) Lexus GS: '05 - 11

All right, I don't want to go full VIP, at least in terms of suspension, as I have no interest in providing transport to the local insect population. As I did with my previous cars, I insist on doing this without idiotic negative camber or strut-destroying spring-only setups.

I've read that lowering for AWD cars is impossible/difficult. I've heard about vibration problems. My online searches have yielded minimal results on what products (springs, struts, coilovers) are available to do this. Airbags should only be in cars and on girls.

Can the VIP crowd advise on which directions I should be heading if I'm to take this seriously?
