Yes - and then narrow the front beam and then use dropped spindles.
Plenty of info on here - do a search.

You just might not like the way it drives though - my opinion.

from what i have heard you can drop the rear 2 splines, anymore than that and you will start going through gearbox's. mines been dropped 2 splines for a while now and ive had no problems. just jack my car up now and again to let the bearing oil circulate a bit.
this is a pic of mine dropped 2 splines at the back.

and this shows the negative camber it produces.

hope that helps.

The rear bearings need a very very small amount of lube. I've not come across anyone that's had rear bearings failing due to drying out.

Tyres aren't as much of a problem as people make out either. Run a reasonable profile at a slightly lower than normal PSI and they'll last ages. Perhaps 10% or so worse than a stocker, hardly anything to cry about though.

If you want a great handling, cheap as possible car, buy a Golf or something. If you want (what is in my opinion blah blah blah) a fun and cool ride, slam a Beetle.
