Is there a coilover system available for the Spyder with adjustable height that can be adjusted to leave the car the same height (no drop)?

Thanks.

KW's can get pretty close, if I remember correctly minimum drop was only 1/2"?

With Kw Variant 3 you will drop the car 30-60 mm at front and 25-55 mm at back.

Loved the Apexi WS coilovers. IMO, it's the perfect coilovers if you Spyder is a daily driver in addition to ocassional track/spirited driving.

I am almost positive the Powertrix coilovers will go up to stock height if not even higher. By why? The stock car sits pretty high.

You might loose some droop travel if the dampers you pick have really short shafts, but you could buy springs of the same rate and an inch longer, and then set the ride height anywhere you want, up to 1" higher than the max height the coilover would have given you with the shorter springs.

I often drive in New York City and need the clearance not do damage the car. Also in jesey some roads have pretty nasty pot holes that cannot be avoided.

I would like to get coilovers. But i do not want to drop the car too much. Which coilovers provide the smallest amount of drop. I do not want to drop less then 0.5 inches.

With any coilover you adjust your ride height. So you can lower it to whatever height you like, its not a pre selected drop like lowering springs.
