850 lowering
 
How low can an 850 get without going to coilovers?

Or is there a limit to lowness with the stock struts and springs?

Reason is I'd like it extremely low just for looks (I don't drive the 850 much)

Lowering springs

How low do the lowest lowering springs lower?

I'm starting to think coilovers are needed for how low I want to get

How low do you want to get?

If you want it super low just buy coilovers. Lowering springs lower less than 2 inches, and you'll want to upgrade shocks/struts anyway. You might as well just spend the bit extra and buy coilovers which will get you the height you want.

As a rough guess I'd say 5-6 inches

Looks like this is not possible without coilovers

What brand coilovers can go the lowest? I don't mind not driving this car, it will moreso be a kind of promotional vehicle for my business and be sitting on display 95% of the time

You'll probably get mixed opinions about different brands. But I've had k-sport coilovers on 2 different cars and they're good enough. I had to get my rear coilovers rebuilt on my 240sx, but they lasted 60k miles and are from 2007.
