What's better lowering springs or coilovers?

Unlike lowering springs, coilovers offer a much greater range of adjustability including ride height, spring pre-load, shock damping, and rebound. Typically, coilover sets feature even stiffer spring rates than a set of lowering springs alone, again sacrificing ride quality for cornering performance.

Lowering springs are great if you want a cheap way to give your car a better stance, and possibly better handling. Depending on the car and spring, however, handling can be hurt by lowering springs. Coilovers are the much better option as they control your car much better and give you lots of adjustabilities.

Can you put lowering springs on coilovers?

Lowering Springs Vs Coilovers. A proper spring and shock set up can make your car lower, slightly stiffen up your suspension, which makes a cheaper alternative to coilovers with nearly similar performance. However, springs do not allow you to adjust your damping or height on the fly like coilovers allow you to.
