Practical mods and lowering questions

New guy here. Actively looking for a wagon and have some general questions. I am looking for something practical to drive but still will draw a little attention to it. I am going to use the wagon in my two businesses so it will be transportation as well as advertising.

Question has to do with drop spindles, if you lower the car 2" with spindles how much does that effect the car. Am I going to be constantly scrapping getting in uphill driveways, ramps, ect? I am thinking I am probably better off to not lower it at all. It would be embarrassing to get stuck in a clients driveway!

Next, question has do to handling. I know these are not sports car. So what mods are cost effective to improve the handling? I assume sway bars would be the best bang for the buck? I read the threads about using the SS springs and good shocks. Sounds like that might give me a little lower stance but being a big wagon I am not sure if sway bars wouldn't be better overall?

Thanks in advance.
