The handeling will improve slightly but in the limit range it can become quite wobbly. Plus the general shock absorbance is weird, since the shocks are soft and the springs are hard. Go the proper way and get some quality shocks as well, you won't regret it.
I ws going to get the Eibach setup, but after looking around for performance I settled on the H&R kit... I will be running Koni sport shocks and struts though... lowering any vehicle on stock shocks can be very bad... like said above, it changes characterstics because the two parts dont work in conjunction together...
