Springs and coilovers are in two different categories. If you want a cheaper alternative and no adjustability, then springs. If you want a complete system and the ability to adjust, then coilovers.

Which do you want and go from there.

Don't make the mistake of springs, you'll just wind up switching for coils. Go with coils.

The springs lower the car. That's is. Coil overs are high performance "shocks" so you aren't just lowering the car, but have better shocks for performance reasons. Many are adjustable so you can increase firmness, or decrease it. You can adjust ride height, etc. Coilovers are performance shocks and will improve handling, cornering, etc. Springs just lower the car, and are a fixed amount. If you want to lower the car and get off cheap, coils are a cheap easy way to fix it. If you want to improve the handling of the car, or adjust it, coilovers is the more expensive way to go.
