    Your question seems confusing, you lower your care with a set of lowered coil springs

    How low are you trying to go?

    Lowering springs can get you in the 2"-3" lower realm.

    Coil-over's are also more expensive than lowering springs.

    I'm not a fan of coil overs. Not required, you can only lower a car so much before you destroy the ride and handling.

    Coil-overs serve more purpose than trying to slam a car on the ground

    If I had a V6 car and was a novice, and was lowering it for looks mostly and a bit of handling, I would just buy new coil springs. Coil overs offer more tun-ability and confusion than you need. If you were road racing, maybe.

    Sparta and gearhead are spot-on. You're going to spend a lot more money for good coilovers, and buy suspension tenability that you probably have no use for, unless you're tracking the car. Go with a reputable manufacturer for a good set of lowering springs, and you'll be happy.

    Yep, normal lowering springs, unless you're wanting to SLAM the car and then you'll need coilovers (or airbags).
