a sport suspension wont lower your car...you need either 'lowering sprigs' (which i dont recommend) or a coil-over set up (which i HIGHLY recommend)

What's wrong with lowering springs?

As long as you get a suitable shock to compliment them, I don't see any problem with them.

The adjustability is nice, but for performance purposes some would say springs are actually better, and they're like 1/2 the cost. Plus your car comes with non-adjustable springs to begin with.

I'm not saying there's anything wrong with coils, but i dont see why you wouldn't recommend springs.

i'm confused

The sport package springs will lower the car a noticeable amount, but obviously only as much as other sport package cars.

Seems logical to me.
