You further prove my point about having to buy new struts to go with my new lowering springs...I'd rather just buy the coilovers and be able to adjust the height.
Can we please be civil?

It was stated that lowering springs blow out struts quicker, when read it looks like you're talking about stock struts and aftermarket springs.

The counterpoint was that the correct spring/strut combo does not have that issue, which doesn't prove the point implied about lowering springs wearing out shocks quicker.
