Sure because coilovers are way more expensive than springs. I think the h&r super sports are even lower than the sportlines.

If you get adjustable coilovers but they seize up easily. You're car won't handle the best also IMO

As long as my car's handling doesnt completely change and make me have to go around corners 10mph slower than normal im good. Im wondering if i can have them at the exact same height im at now for daily use then when im going to a show i could lower it down to give it a better look?

Yes you just adjust the springs to whatever ride height you want. Make sure you keep the threads lubricated though because they start to seize and become harder to adjust.

I vote coilovers. I put Maximum Motorsports coilovers in my car and adjusting them is super easy. When there is zero load on the front wheels or the axles (jack stands under subframe connectors) the coils are only sitting on the bottom spring perch, not even touching the top, i can just go in there and twist it with my hand. Takes me longer to jack up the car than it does to adjust it..... BUT, when you adjust it you are going to need another alignment.

I'll buy your current springs from you if you end up switching them out
