I really want to drop my car a good inch or two to get rid of the crazy wheel gap but until I land a new job my budget is tight. What would be the cheapest route that isn't complete crap from eBay? Can I get by with just some springs for now or will it not work well without shocks and struts too? Ride quality isnt a huge priority but handling is.

I have the FRPP-P Springs as well. Ride quality is pretty good, drops it an inch, won't give you the slammed look. If roads in your area are kinda rough, these are a good option. I have heard people with the FRPP-K springs hit the bump stops a lot on rough roads. I installed them myself in about three hours with a couple of jack stands and a floor jack. Make sure you have an impact wrench to break the nuts loose on the struts at the brake assembly.

Lmao @ Nuke. Even after he said to reduce the wheel gap hahaha
Ahhhh that was funny. Yea, springs are very cheap and with handle the appearance part of it but ride quality will be affected. Handling will be better than stock.
I have FRPP Springs and Shocks/Struts. Handles like a beast but I feel every pothole painfully (more mental pain for my car, because it really isn't painful lol. Just hard on the ears when you hear it slam)
