Coilovers when properly set-up, are best. Next best are the "spring over" adjustable options from KW, Ground Control, and TC Kline (these use the stock dampers but have adjustable ride-height). Lastly springs from Eibach, H&R, B&G, RD Sport, etc. I had Eibach springs and liked the ride quality and the ride height was conservative (meaning it allowed for reasonable ground clearance). I recently switched to coilovers and the street performance / ride quality is much better even at a very low ride-height. However you pay much more for the extra performance of coil-overs.
