Default Coilovers ? or Lowering Springs and struts

I want to lower my HS. Should l go with Tein Coilovers or lowering springs? This is a daily driver, it will never see the track. I want to keep the ride close to stock.

Who makes lowering springs? I am surprised Tein even makes coilovers for the HS considering how few of them were sold in the US. Who sells all this stuff? Springs are usually much cheaper than coilovers and would be my choice for a daily driver.
If you get lowering springs you may cause your factory struts & shocks to fail earlier as they may not be able to handle the lowering. However, I am unsure if anyone makes aftermarket struts & shocks. I do recall the rare Touring model has stiffer struts & shocks than the Premium & base which have the same suspension.
