Just get some ground control adjusters and springs if you're just looking for some good lowness.

How are these for ride comfort? I'm debating coil overs on mine. Last time I had a set (back in my Nissan days) they were uncomfortably stiff.

They are not comfortable, and they'll perform like shit until you get good struts and shocks, like billies or konis. They're also noisy and rattly.

I only suggested these since the OP asked for coilovers, but I'd recommended anything but coilovers unless you're making a serious / track car, not daily driven.

Just go with bilstein sport kit (~$800) or H&R Sport springs and bilsteins. Comfy, low and trouble free.
