Lowering Springs!

Hey there! I have a 2001 2 Dr. civic. I want to lower my car and was wondering what brand are some good lowering springs? I don't want to get coilovers(too much $$$) so I need to know what brand is the best to get, and how much should they cost? Thanks!

Just don't drop your car too low or you will have to buy shocks.

you guys should use the search function, we've posted these questions to death...


but to answer the questions:

Jay don't ask what brand is good, everyone here has different opinions. Personally, i use eibach.

Speedx3 thats tricky, you can go a good 1" - 1.5" and be okay, but spring quality and performance plays a factor into how much work the struts do, and how long they'll last. The eibach Pro-Kit (0.8" - 1.5" drop depending on who you talk to) are a good spring that are easier on your struts than an eibach sportline (1.0" - 2.0" depending on your source) would be.
