1994 Honda Civic EX

Hey guys; I have a 94 Civic EX that I just bought, I went to get my emissions test done so I can get plates on the car. The front end of the car is too low for the emissions test to be completed. I was told I could pick up some adjustable struts, not sure if that is true. Just curious what my best option is going to be, as I am on a time limit. Only have so many days on a temporary tag. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks

Ramps? Is there something you need to pull over that you will hit? Maybe borrow some stock springs for the test then go back?

Re: 1994 Honda Civic EX

Can I get adjustable struts or will I have to go another route? I would prefer for my car to be adjustable so I can raise or lower it whenever, depending on how I'm feeling. When I tried to get my emissions test done, my exhaust pipes coming from the front of my car were sitting on the roller. I know I can just pick up some stock springs and get the test done, but I would prefer to just get the parts that I want on the car now, so I don't have to spend the extra money later. But seeing as I am on a time limit I might have to wait. What do you guys think is my best option?

If you think a good mechanic is expensive, try hiring a bad one

The twist-in wedges used to be available at DangerZone. IDK if they would still have them in your local store.

Lift the car, shove the block wedges in, set car down.
Or
Lift the car, crank in the twist wedges, set the car down.
Quick and simple.
