Default Atomwerk rear lowering plates and Coil-overs

Was wondering if anyone is running atomwerk rear lowering spring plates and coil-overs? Thinking of installing adjustable rear coil-overs, but most research I've done no one is using these plates. I have found that most guys doing the coil-over swap are using a ride height of about 10.5 in. coil-overs with a spring rate of 350-400 lbs. Was thinking because of these drop plates, I will have to run about 8.5 in. ride height. Any info would be great?

Coilovers in lieu of torsions? I see no reason you can't do what you want. Drop plates are pretty proven as are coilovers, unless you are referring to the cheap Empi style. The expense of coilovers keeps most of us away.

Yes, want the adjustability of a coil-over. Looking toward QA1 coils, not uber expensive. Already have the drop plates installed on the car.
