How much do you want to spend? Good springs can be had for under $300, where as a set of decent coil overs can be far more and may not ride as well.

My budget is 1k $ and below, i dont mind to go for lowering springs, i just want a 1-2fingers fender gap + good ride quality for daily driving

Im on Eibach Pro Kit and stock shocks. Rides great and perfectly lowered. I can travel with my kids and wife and a full trunk without rubbing.

The stock height with the body kit works well, but 1" lowering springs would cause scraping going up a inclined driveway.

If you don't mind taking bumps and ramps at an angle, the H&R's offer a pretty sexy drop with 18" rims and tires. I bought Koni FSD dampers to go with them and the combo rides great. No complaints from the family and no rubbing, even with 5 mm spacers installed.

Same here, rides very similar to stock but noticeable during cornering. Looks much better and a bit of an offset (wheels or spacers) really helps the remainder wheel gap. H&R drop looks perfect to me but I’d imagine the ride quality on stocks shocks would be pretty poor.
