I am thinking of lowering my 95sx 1.5-2.0 inches, will i have to install a camber kit as well to go this low? any reccomendations for shocks/coilovers?

i would recondmend the camber kit....  anything over 1.5 should ahve a camber but it is not a must, just u will be eating away your tires....
1.5 i would buy the eibach springs or intrax (sprint is the cheapest)
shocks-AGX adjustables
but i would buy the whole system from Apexi for $900

money really isn't much of any issue, i want something i will be happy with. the way my car handles is more important than just dropping it. so you would reccomend the apexi? a friend told me about tockito (sp?). i just wanted the advice of the board.

i rather go with Apexi cuz it has a nice stiff ride without all the bumps... if money is not an issue than look for more expensive stuff like the Tein system or other high end systems and dampers

If money isn't an issue, get Tein coilovers, they run about $1500.

The Apex'i World Sport coilover is $900, however, it doesn't have upper mounts, so you have to use the stock ones. The other Apex'i coilover system is N1, they run around $2000.  WS coilovers are good enough for street, but Tein and N1 systems are perfect for track racing.

Coilovers are basically to find the right height of your vehicle, without sacrificing handling and ride quality.  Springs/shocks are good enough for ride quality and handling, but you can't adjust the height, except if you have Ground0-control coilovers or something like that.

DO NOT get lowering springs with stock shocks. This is the worst thing you could do, you would have the bounciest ride. Get good sport shocks, like KYB or GAB.

bouncy ride cuz u will blow the shocks... dont get ground control unless u dont care about how your car handles... springs will always be better than coilovers... except for coilover/shocks systems like the apexi and better

If money isnt a issue get coilovers. Not the fake ass VIS kind. I mean real coilovers like Tien, HKS, Zeal, Apexi, etc. Apex makes a street set that is damb good for about $1k
