Okay but what about coil overs versus lowering springs? Lowering springs come in a fixed rate, they are simply a direct replacement of your factory springs which will lower your car to a pre-set level. Now this will still improve handling, and they will usually retain the OEM ride quality, however, if you wanted to go lower, then you would have to resort to a coilover.
Coilovers depending on the design can lower from an adjustable spring perch, or you can thread the body of the strut into the lower mount to lower or even raise the ride height to your liking. Some coilovers will come with their own set of top hats to be a direct drop-in fitment, or they may require you to retain your OEM top hats.
