Adjustable shocks/struts won't lower your car any. ... correction, unless the spring perch is in a different location.

You can change the height on the Koni rears, but not on the fronts. It's really going to stiffen them up though.

Actually, I think the perchs on the Konis are slightly lower so you're right about that the car seems to sit lower. That's really good news to me. I've got the Prokit and 205/55-16's, so another extra 1/4" or so of drop would be perfect.

With the ProKit I got about an inch drop at the front and 3/4 inch at the rear with Konis.

Bartkat - After it settled I got over 1" of drop in the front and the back dropped about 1/4" more than the front to make it sit pretty level now. Saturday when I dropped off the car to get the windshield replaced, I parked next to a stock Civic and I couldn't beleive how much the Prokit really lowered the car and I'm glad the back end isn't higher like before!

I haven't measured mine lately. Also I need to park next to a stock Civic to compare. Actually the OEM front lower spoliler gets mine closer to the ground in that area. I had it on the ramps today and I have to kick them under the spoiler now to get them to the tires, and it drags when backing down off the ramps. Definitely lower.
