Garage List
Some here have recommended coilovers, claiming that you can change ride height at will, like it's a piece of cake to do so. Coils ride height can be adjusted, to a point, but it's not like spinning a dial. It requires removing the wheels and adjusting the spring height, evenly, with the required specialty wrenches. So, you'd better have a low profile jack, breaking bar, deep socket with extension, torque wrench, and preferably a garage for all the necessary paraphernalia. Then, once the desired ride height is achieved, the alignment needs to be adjusted, which costs time and money. Coils are great, but not as simply utilized as often made out to be on this forum.
