    The only benefit is that you can get the ride height you want - although going too low will affect suspension geometry.

    TBH That's the only benefit IMO

    For normal road cars normal lowering springs and shocks would be fine

    the reason i went for coilovers is because the racelands are cheaper than springs and shocks and i had no idea how low i wanted to go so i got them for that too
