Since you want to be lower than Pro-kits, there really are no springs you can get which can be paired with the stock shocks and maintain longevity. The best solution is to go w/ something like the Tein Basic coilovers which will give you about 2" lowering with a properly matched set of shocks at a cost of about $700.
If you really want to be save money, go with the Eibach Sport-System which includes their Sportline lowering springs plus Eibach dampers tuned for those springs at a cost of $433. This is the cheapest way to lower your car properly.
You can go with only the Sportline springs, but you'll waste money in the long run as you will blow your stock shocks and have to buy new shocks anyway. Might as well just get the Eibach Pro-system for $433 now and save yourself the added hassle of having to re-do the installation when your stock shocks blow out.
