easily Height adjustable coilovers?

i would like the car to be able to be stock height when i leave my house then when i show up on track or at a meet i can lower it then.

Is there something that suits my needs? i would like it to be easy to raise and lower the car. the roads here are pretty horrific..

Air ride.

All coilovers adjust their ride height via a threaded shock body or sleeve. It's not something you want to mess with after you have your alignment set and ideally the car corner balanced. On the other hand, Ride stiffness is easy to adjust on an adjustable coilover. You would be surprised at the smooth ride quality with some coilovers.

You need hydraulics.
