is this even possible?
Suggestions are welcome. I have an XI and the front is too high.

Or KW Street Comforts. The only way to get a 1" drop and maintain ride quality is with coilovers, and even then that's not necessarily the case. I have KW V1s and performance is great, I can set the height exactly where I want it but it's too harsh for Seattle streets. KW Street Comforts are adjustable in height and damping and supposedly geared toward a softer ride, but they're kinda spendy at $1600, which is close to the Bilstein PSS9s.

Thanks man, good to know. That price isn't too bad. I expect the install costs are at least another 1500 or so?

Install prices vary quite a bit by shop and location. I've seen people pay as low as $200 (that's very cheap) to as much as $600. I think average is around $400 - $100 per corner.
