Oil change on lowered is from dealer?

I was wondering once i get my car lowered am i able to get an oil change form the dealer? dont they put ur car on a lift?

Also how often do u get ur oil change? months/miles
im at 2k miles and 2 months
I think the navigation has it set on 5k for an oil change

my car is dropped 1.5 inches.
changing the oil is a pain.
you have to jack up the front end to get the lifters underneath.
and then go to the back and jack up the rear to get the rear lifters in the back and then you can raise the car in the air.

i get the oil changed every 3-5K because of turbo and of course depending on driving. the books say its ok to go 5K with conventional oil. I use fully synthetic mobil 1.
