Without changing your springs no.

People have cut springs to make them lower or heated them up and compressed the to lower them too. This is NOT safe. Many have done it and it is dangerous.

A full lowering spring kit should be around the 70 mark so buy them and maybe upgrade the shocks too.

Hope this helps
