i think you should invest in some coilovers. you can go a low as you want, and change it whenever you feel like it.

Do you need a camber(sp?) kit? I heard if you lower your car 2 inches or more you should get one.

With coilovers, don't you need new struts?

I'm pretty sure the Hotchkis coilover system is not adjustable. However, I do not know the drop if you got that system. I know the regular springs are 1 3/8 in front and 1 7/8 in back, but that may not be what the coilovers are.

True coilovers have the struts built in, your thinking of coilover sleeves like ground control. Good coilovers are expensive, but its the ultimate in adjustablity and Performance. But remember if you keep adjusting the height your gonna have to keep gettin the tires aligned. I'd recommend tein, they have a good reputation and the quality of my s-tech springs is good.

A: You put gas in it.
