coilovers upfront and lowering springs in the back?

Has anyone done a mixed suspension such as coilovers up front and lowering springs in the back? I ask because I'm not too crazy about cutting holes in my trunk in order to adjust the coilovers in the back. Also, from a theoretical standpoint, I don't see why it still couldn't be a well performing set up

I have coilovers out back (no holes in trunk) and lowerig springs up front. I don't have any issues with it.

Well, it certainly isn't an "optimum" set-up, but you could definitely do it. Personally, I would rather see you find some rear coilovers that do not require holes in the trunk for adjustment, there are plenty out there.

Was looking at ridetech do they require holes in the trunk? Maybe a better question is which ones don't require cutting holes in the trunk to adjust and are they any good and are they less than 4k front and back

Level 2 hq ones don't require a hole. Adjustment is by the lower control arm.

Agreed. RideTech is a great option. Let me know if I can answer any questions.
