Lowering springs or coilovers?

So I'm looking to drop my car it's all stock.
I've heard mixed reviews so I want to know what others
Have on their car.

My sisters boyfriend said to go with lowering springs S. tein to be specific.

And one of my buddies is trying to tell me kw coilovers are the way to go.
May I add he's the one wanting to sell me his coil overs for $300.

Majority of the springs are junk, majority of the CO's are junk...KW CO's would be the way to go.

Thats a decent deal for the coilovers, might as well pick those up since it'll be close to what you'll pay for new springs.

I've heard that CO's wear out the tires and make the car too bouncy..
True?

wear out tires? no, that's 100% to do with the alignment (that most people DON'T do when they put coilovers on).

make it bouncy? if you have cheap junk coilovers the ride can be unpleasant.

The car will.be.more bouncy if its full.soft. when its full hard(lol) its just a stiffer rougher ride but I would.say less bouncy.

Mods: Needswings downpipe catless, 3'' o2 housing, riceplate, FM wastegate, BC coilovers, and DSP 93 octane tune.
