If it's for looks only...just get a lowering kit, but if you want better should grab another -1.5 of front camber with camber plates.

You can get -1.8 negative camber with stock suspension (if u pull the pins). An addition -1.5 would be usable on the track but I wouldn't recommend it on the street as you will burn through tires quicker.

To be clear - I don't have anything against sleeve-over kits. I would personally choose a sleeve over kit for my use because I would want to lower the car far more than 10mm. Plus the ability to adjust camber would be nice. There is no denying that it is great to have the extra flexibility of a sleeve-over kit. I recommended springs Because the OP seems to desire a conservative set-up.
