Lowering springs or coil-overs.

Don't get lowering springs they maybe cheaper but give you a harsh ride. Go for some Koni yellows/Ground control coilovers. You may need a camber kit depending on how much offset your rims are and how much you lower it. If your offset is inbetween +35-+45 you wont need a camber kit. But if you do, go for skunk2.

also camber kits and an alignment with good tires all around

my input!, i have a 99 Si and i wanted o the same thing but your gonna half to spend some money in order to do so, i suggest the best bang for youre buck would be eibach ground control coilovers, they ride great and i have mine flush (wheels tucked in) but if you do lower it you will half to have a camber kit to keep your wheels level unless you want - more camber you can flush it or whatever, most part get the coilovers and you yourself can set how high or low she sits
