I want to drop my car...the only problem is if i should get springs...then eventually new struts/shocks...or coilovers...my dilemma is where i live and go to school winters are rought a lot of snow...and also problem potholes and shitty roads...anyway if i get springs i cant adjust height but w/ coilovers i can but there a lot more $...i want to know from people with springs...liek tein s-tech eibach sportsline or anything else if there clearance is good in the front...or should i just get coilovers(although i hear bouncy ride)?
You can get Teins basic dampening kit, it's their entry level coil over and it's $825 at www.i-m-racing.com It's a little more expensive than buying springs & shocks, but you the ability to raise the car.

i went with the tanabe super ss coilovers and the hotchkis rear camber kit. i live in ohio so i know how winter can be and potholes and i have been fine. Do some sort of adjustable suspension because you will not be happy with just normal lowering springs
What's more important to you? Wheels or Suspension?
Shocks + Springs will run you around $600 for something nice, that's only $200 more than Tein's entry level coil over. If you're really worried about pot holes & driving in the winter, then you're better off spending the extra $200 on coil overs.
that's the saying bro - it's a metaphor alluding to the fact that the situation is now under your control... like if you're playing tennis and you're about to crush a forehand down the line - you control its direction, rotation, and speed - whereas as soon as the ball passes over the net the situation is out of your hands
