Changing the Springs on my Coilovers

Hey guys

I'm looking to put a set of 12 kg springs on the front dampers and possibly 9 or 10 kg springs on the rear. Right now though Im mainly interested in doing the front to help keep my upper ball joints from hitting. I'm lowered on Tein SS and I'm at the minimum height the springs will allow.

So my question is do I buy longer springs and leave the spring seats where they are or do i buy shorter springs and raise the perches?

Thanks

Is your goal to stay at the current height, go lower or raise it?

Buy shorter springs @12k. Crank collars up to achieve the same height.... This would allow you to go lower in the future, should you desire. Oooooooorrrr, just leave the collars at their current location, get shorter springs with stiffer spring rate and go looooooower

Thanks hecreated487 i think what I'm gonna end up doing its upgrading the springs all around and get shorter springs for the front and just crank up the seats. I'm assuming this will also help with handling as well?
