ST coils - worth selling/trading?

I have ST coilovers on my e90 and have put about 10K miles on them over a year. I just changed my wheels out to 19s and need to raise the car a bit (it settled lower than I expected initially). I'm thinking about going back to sport suspension since I am slowly reverting to more of a stock look and was thinking about selling the coils for $650 or ($500 + stock sport suspension). Is it worth what I'm going to pay for the labor if I'm not selling the car anytime soon? Should I just adjust the height and not deal with the suspension change?

personally i would just raise it and then leave it alone.

but if u want the money, then do the swap yourself to save on install cost and then sell.

Too low for the 19s. Looked good with the 20s but now it looks like a lowered Honda Accord from 1998

No idea what the ride is like with the STs compared to stock, but I would just raise up the STs and get an alignment .... makes financial sense.

You'll be able to raise/lower the car 1.2"-2.4" up front and 1.0"-2.2" in the rear. I'd say raise the car up first instead of selling it off
