cheapest way is to cut springs!
but yes, you should replace shocks too as you're oe shocks were not meant to be paired up with lowering springs. if you're not tracking the car, you can get away with brands like h&r which provide the look and comfort, not so much the performance. i'd stay away from cheapo brands like megan racing however. just remember, you get what you pay for.
