    what reason you want coil-overs...
    coil-overs aren't to be put so that you constantly adjust the height... each time you change, the car requires an alignment.
    coil-overs are usually purchased because you can chose the spring rate of choice... and then you install them @ a given height and be done w/ it.

    since you into road-racing/auto-xing
    so what spring rates you thinking of ?
    what about swaybar sizes ?
    wheel sizes ?
    shocks ?

    I'm used both QA1 and the Edelbrocks. Both are adjustable. I have the QA1s now, I don't like them. Too stiff, makes the car ride like a truck. I have the single adjustables with the 300# springs. This is my daily driver. My brother has the Edelbrocks on his, he likes them. I'm going to take off the QA1s, I'll sell them to ya! :P

    lots of people end up using the Grounc-Control coil-overs.
    you couple that with some Bilstein revalved shocks and you have a great combo.
    Only need to make sure your swaybar combo is taken into account.
    Sam @ www.stranoparts.com actually sell all those items and will be able to guide you as well, based on your specific needs (racing, autox)... he is multi-time National champion @ autox, after all...
