lowering/stiff springs, which ones?

hey guys i was hoping you would give me your two cents on the best springs for me, i would love to get a full suspension kit, but right now i cant afford it. so for now i want springs that dont lower too much no more than 1.5in i would realy like olny 1in of lowering. i would like the springs much stiffer for sure. plese let me know what you think i should get.
i found these, but i'm not sure if there eney good?

Apparently UUC has springs for E30s and they supposedly will work on stock shocks/struts. They're not on the website though, you'd have to email Rob Levinson (rob@shortshifter.com).

If you want to spend a bit more and not go too crazy, I recommend the Bilstein Sports and H&R Sports combo. You'll love your car all over again.
