How can I lower my 84 Caprice CHEAPLY?

I would like to get it down around 2 inches front and rear. Is there other front and rear coils from something else that will get it down? I have two pick a part salvages close to me and I think coil springs are $12 a piece.

im running 2" drop springs from a company in CA with tokico blue shocks. with stock 15" wheels it rode firm with little roll. im now running 20x8.5 with 225/40 all around and its rougher but still smooth and handles like no caprice should. i never bottom the suspension out and nothing rubs...even at full lock. speed bumps are no problem and only the muffler ever barely scrapes, and thats only due to sagging. check out my pics..any other questions just ask i just re did the whole.car last winter
