So I am thinking of buying a coilover kit to lower my car, and I was wondering if that is all I need. Or would I need to get/should get new strut mounts as well? I apologize in advance if this is something that has been asked before...I did try searching. Anyways, let me know. Thanks.

Coilovers cover it all, make sure they are adjustable

You will just need to transfer your old mounts over.

It is not like a car with a McPherson strut where there is an actual bearing for the front struts.
On those type of cars I usually recommend replacing the mount and bearing as it is a wear item.
