Question on lowering

I'm sorry if this has been posted before, but I'm going to ask anyways...I want to lower my celica. I have a 00 GT auto with 17's. Now, I don't want to drive all wierd and there are dips and bumps by my house, so I can't lower it too much. Also, the guys at the place where I got my tires alligned, balanced, etc... said that if you lower the car too much, they can't put it on the lift and raise it up to work on it. I also don't want that, so how much would you guys recommend I lower it.

Also, what is the difference between springs and coilovers? Do you guys recommend one or the other? What brand of either do you guys recommend?? Will both be alright if I put them on with stock shocks?

Thanks in advance for all replies...

get the TRD springs they drop something like 1.2 inches. and im pretty sure coilovers are the springs that are adjustable and the stock shocks will be fine
