You'll end up spending a fortune to correct steering and drivetrain alignment problems. Your half shafts, rack, tie rods, etc. will all be at awkward angles, bind, and will eventually self destruct. Overall handling, if you do nothing except the extreme slam will be like crap.

if you want a 4 inch drop... just take the wheels off and wheel your car around on a couple of skate boards... sorry I had to take my jab.
Be carefull with the springs, and be carefull with the drop. You can do some serious damage if you are not warry. Definitly look into some airbags, you seem to be a perfect case for an airride kit...
Keep us posted on your progress.
