I have already installed the UPR K member with UPR coilovers, kyb struts, MaxMotorsports CC Plates, Steeda Bumpsteer Kit, MOOG Inner Tie Rods, and I still want my car to be lowered out. I feel like after i was done installing that crap it put it back to stock ride height. And i used the extra spacer on top of the CC plates for the "lowered stance" and i compressed the springs as much as i could by hand for the coilovers. Should i look for drop spindles? Can somebody recommend any? Thanks!

A 250# CO up front is gonna be pretty comparable to an OEM spring, maybe a bit heavier, in terms of rate. What are your ULTIMATE goals here?

It would be hard to get a proper alignment. Ive maxed out my MM c/c plates and have the eibach camber bolts and I still have .8 degrees of negative camber.

With the spindles it should be easy to get a good alignment. And you could step down to a 12-200 spring and see how you like that.

would drop spindles be good to look into? I have some things to go on and didn't know if it would be good to have them too. I have mm cc plates, tokico shocks and struts, steeda bumpsteer, moog ball joints.

Get a slightly shorter spring? I have a 10 inch 250 pound spring in mine and I'm at about half a finger gap or so. Only rubs when I turn all the way left or right. I have 275s up front as well.

Well if your compressing the springs with the adjusters, you are raising the car. Back off the preload and your car will drop. You should only have to preload the springs a couple turns.
