Whats everyone using to drop their Jeeps?

Just wondering what everyone is using to lower their Jeep? Springs only swap or coil overs?
Bare with me if they dont make a coil over kit, I have been driving a Charger and a 300 the last 6yrs. Still learning about this platform. I have about 41,000 miles on my Jeep.

Originally all we had were springs and that's what most have but now a coil over kit is available that can go a little lower than springs.

if I had to lower my GC again, I would go with coilovers. I will do a coil over once I need to replace my strut/shocks.

Sounds like coil overs is the way to go, what brand does everyone recommend, or are they all about the same?

Only one choice and that's BC. The lower you go the more the front will bottom out.
