Which Coilovers are Right for Me?

2003 Ford Focus ZX3 2.3L w/ FocusSport Stage 2 Turbo

Daily Driver w/ some AutoX/Canyon Runs

Roads: 80% smooth, 15% so-so, 5% rough (pot hole/speed bump central)

Goal: Adequate ride comfort as this is a DD, but I want great cornering and the ability to adjust and fine tune without raising the car or removing the coilovers.

Why coilovers? I'm removing my rear seats and want the ability to lower the back 1/2"+ lower than the fronts.

I've looked into all the major coilover companies and just wondering if anyone could recommend anything..

Koni Coilovers? Tein? KW? Tested H&R coilovers and they were a bit rough though not too rough.. Would rather pay a little more for ride comfort adjustability.

Any input would be appreciated.
