They won't improve them, it'll make it harder for you to hook up (less/no weight transfer), do you have relocation brackets? You'll need them if you have a sticky tire because you'll have wheel hop, also they may not cure it, you may need a TQ arm too.

my suspension is completely stock right now, I dont have the money for shock and springs, so the springs would be installed first and then once I save up I would get some shocks

wait and do it right....stock shocks will be worse with lowered springs.... Do a search.
For Drag purposes it is better to stay with stock springs. For handling you may want to lower and get a revalved bilstein or koni SA.
