Suspensions very frequently modified but very challenging to setup in a performance enhancing manor. Lowering clamps lower your car without changing the spring rate, lowering springs won't match the damping rate of your shocks, camber should only be slightly negative, wheel spacers can decrease braking stability, and roll bars should be used to fine tune steering dynamics.

Coilovers - Explained
What are coilovers? How do coilovers work? Coilovers are a common performance upgrade for car suspensions. Coilovers can allow for lowering a vehicle, and also can reduce body roll with stiffer springs. A coilover gets its name from simply a coil spring over a shock absorber. The coilovers used in the video are Yonaka Motorsports coilovers for a 94-01 Acura Integra.

What's The Best Suspension - Soft or Stiff Springs?
Is it better for a suspension to have soft coil springs or stiff springs? The purpose of a suspension is to keep your tires on the ground. A softer suspension will offer more mechanical grip as it will do a better job of keeping the tires on the ground vs a stiff suspension when it comes to depressions, bumps, and surface irregularities in the road. But then why do race cars have such stiff suspensions? This video explains the design philosophy behind race car suspensions. Related Links (And Hat Tip!)

How to adjust ride height & corner balance your car - KW Suspension DDC - Technik
Setting your ride height is just the start when you switch to coilovers. The real beauty of using KW DDC coilovers for us was in being able to lower the car and maintain the OEM corner balance. KW and other coilovers also let you improve the corner balance or weight distribution of your car if your car doesn't already have a good set up from the factory. Technik and GTChannel show you how to set up the KW Suspension DDC using our project BMW E92 M3. We changed our wheels and tires to a square set up and in doing so raised the front ride height. This changed the handling characteristics. By putting on the DDC coilovers we were able to adjust the ride height and more importantly regain the stock corner weights despite the taller front tires. Robert Choo lends us his expertise and garage to do the adjustments.
