Only 15K? Wow that sucks. So now I'm back at square one. What do you guys recommend. I don't want a stiff ride but also want to drop the car maybe an inch or inch and a half. Not really a big fan of the slammed drop. I also definitely don't want one that wears out after 15K

Any suggestions close to what i'm looking for?

You also have to consider that coilovers are less durable than the stock suspension. Coilovers are built for the track, while stock suspension is built for the road. If you mainly drive on bad city roads, expect your coilovers to wear prematurely. My friend who lived in an area with bad roads had his KW V3s go out on him within 15K miles.
