I would normally say lower it, but safety first man get some lights. And it will look like poo when u get moisture in your lights so do that first.

Please do NOT get halos.

They may seem cool when you get them (I had a set on my first mustang), but they're god-awful hideous.
I regret buying them more than anything else I ever did to my car.
Besides, they're worthless unless you have the brights on. It's like duct taping a candle to your car and trying to see at night.

I would get new headlights. Fix what's not right on your car before doing other things that don't have to be done right now

You could pick up a couple tubes of clear RTV silicone and seal the hell out of the lights.
It's worth a shot, worst case is you still need new lights and are out maybe $5.
I recommend pulling the entire light assembly out and removing the bulbs so you just have the housing. Point a heat gun (or hair dryer on high and hot) into the end bulb socket and let it sit overnight.

With sportlines, be sure to budget for new shocks and struts soon. The stock dampers aren't matched to the stiffer rates and lower ride of the sportlines, and the springs will cause them to wear out quicker.
