I could have the wrong idea of how most coilovers work, I was looking at the KW Variant 1s and I don't want to adjust the height of the car using the springs. I'd like to use the springs for dampening and adjust the perch for height. Thank you

Read the FAQ's at the top of this forum; although based on the MkIV the principals still apply. Lowering ruins suspension geometry and makes the car handle worse.
If you use quality parts and stay in the manufacturers recommended adjustment range the ride should not be significantly affected.
They only stiffen the suspension if they use higher than stock spring rates.
They allow adjusting the suspension for setting the corner weights.
Yes, lowering drops the center of gravity, but it also changes the roll center, camber curve, and other aspects of the suspension geometry in ways the cause more harm than good.
