If you put any type of lowering spring on stock shocks it will cause them to wear out much faster because of the extra load. If you plan on getting shocks anyways, might as well do it all at once and save money on the install if you're not DIY'ing.

if you can DIY, then go for it. After all when the stock shockies blo...u can replace them at the cost of some elbow grease.

but if you intend on paying for the installation, then save up and do the job right the first time. Trust me on this, i learnt the hard way.
