Well, then i recommend you go for a good spring /strut combo like Koni's and rallitek springs or epic springs.

coilovers for around $1k are junk unless you like a crap ride that's height adjustable.

koni's are a good choice.


my oem strut/rallitek spring combo rode like asshole compared to my BC's on soft setting. vast improvement.

right now i have tein s tech springs with the stock struts. i want to go lower. way lower.

you do realize that there isnt that much more suspension travel to go lower. you are gonna need some very stiff coilovers with custom rates to go lower and not hit the bumpstops, and it will be very stiff. you will spend lots of money to accomplish this.

i just want to go maybe an inch lower. i was thinking of just cutting my stock springs and putting them on every once and awhile.

Cutting the springs is definitely the way to go. It only takes an hour or two, and you can super slam your ride. And the best part is that its completely safe.
