Need to lower by 2". Keeping stock tire size. How much will it lower if I replace the front springs with stock Impala SS springs? Will it give me the 2' I'm looking for?

I think it would be very close to two inches if not right on.

Do I need to change the rear springs also?

If you want the rear to sit lower, you will have to replace the springs.

Be sure to replace the shocks while you are at it. You won't be able to keep the level ride feature with the shorter springs, so just go with conventional shocks for the rear. If you want to keep the comfy ride, I've heard Monroe "Monro-Matic Plus" offer the best ride for a replacement strut.

One can keep the level ride with a lowered car, you need to adjust the sensor arm on the diff.

Can I use stock shocks? Or do I need something different to compensate for less travel?

You can use stock shocks.

You can use stock shocks.

You totally can, but IMO these cars are 20+ years old. Just replace them when you have the car apart. The fronts are really cheap, and so are the rears if you buy conventional shocks and do away with the level ride. Even air shocks that will work with all the level ride stuff are only about $100 to 150 a pop.
