Coil Over kits
what is the advantage if any of going with a coil over kit. what exactly is the difference and how do they help over just swapping the springs and shocks. this question is plagueing me.

You're talking about the threaded/adjustable lower front spring seats, correct?
(1) They allow you to set the ride height exactly where you want it.
(2) They're a lot lighter than the factory sized springs(at least for our cars).
(3) You can get them in almost any spring rate(in 25lb.in. increments),

Also understand this:
If you are getting them to adjust the ride height, that's fine, make sure that once you get the ride height where you want it, get the front tires aligned.
Every time you change the ride height for the front end, you'll want to get another front wheel alignment unless you really don't care about tread life.The Black 2001 SS #5697
