Coilovers

Hey I will be showing my car at Hot Import Nights in April, and I am in desperate need of a drop. If I were to get coilovers, could I adjust the height at any time for my car? Does anybody know of a website that sells these for a low price? Will I need to get anything besides coilovers to make the ride safe? Thanks alot..
AND, eventually like in the summer I plan on getting 18 inch rims. I could still use the same coilovers for those too right?

Changing the ride height isn't a 5 minute affair.

It takes some work (getting the car off of the ground and taking the wheels off).

Bad idea.

You shouldn't mix different brands of springs and you also can't just buy the front ones.
