air ride or lowering springs

i looked into air ride but i heard bad things about it and im kinda limited to space for compressor and a tank, so i looked into having springs wound to achieve the stance i want, plus holding the extra 500 pounds of audio equipment in the rearish half of the car(6 batteries, 2 12inch hcca's and the wall), so i looked at struts kyb-gr2's any good?? along with whatever springs happen to get put in 2 inch drop up front and a 1.5 in back to keep it level. i think from what i guesstimated and measured, because im tucking tire if i didnt have spring spacers in there right now, its just sitting way to high plus i want to keep the 16 inch steelies on it so i can maintain my cop car look with a mean ass stance, anyways im lookng for a good strut to pair up with the springs and i have a 1000$ dollar budget for the suspension, ive been reading the other threads about lowering, but times change and wondering what else has came up or if anyone has tried anything new, or discovered any complications that come along with lowering.
thanks for the feed back in advance
