Blackhatch01 Corner balanceing is a real good way to set up. The lower you go in a corner the lighter that corner will be making the other three corners heavier. Just leave some room for weight transfer

Very true. I didn't get really fancy one because I do not have enough knowledge or money to play with all those settings the right ways.

For what you are going to use it for, pay the premium up front and you'll be happier in the long run.

Telling you have it right just entirely depends on what you like. What I think is perfect may be completely different for someone else. As for ride height change, for the front you have to raise the car up remove the wheels and use the supplied wrenches in the kit to adjust the height. The rear just needs to be raised up to adjust.

Just my $0.02

You'll probably be really happy with that coilover setup. H&R makes good stuff.
^truth unless you have plenty of time to spend dialing in your suspension having just plain coilovers that don't have any adjustments other than up and down will likely be more than enough.
