Question Michigan, Winter, and Switching to Stock Springs?

Hey Guys, I'm looking at getting some K Sport or Eibach lowering springs this summer, but my dad is being tough about it, because the car is under his name, and I don't really have a job to pay off my own car and insurance. So he sounds willing to let me get them if I see if it's worth it to switch back to stock in winter. Is this a big PITA, or will it be fine? Winters in Michigan ARE a bitch, and I have already ****ed up the bottom of my radiator from going over some deep shit in a driveway this last winter. But I know I need to drive more careful if I lower it. Any other Michigan lowered owners that could give advice as well? Thanks!

Angles are your friend and learn to use them and you will be fine. As for switching, front sucks the backs are easy.

Thanks! I'm thinking if it takes half a day to put them on, I can spend a half a day in the fall and the spring to switch them. :P
