i dubt they'd ride nice since its for a prelude's body weight and all. but to know you gotta try, good luck!

if they do fit, won't they sit a lot higher on your car since the huge difference in body weight? I had the neuspeed sport springs on my coupe, the rear sits a little higher then the coupe version since there sedan springs. I figure you'd get the same effect except to more of extreme since there's a larger difference in body weight between a prelude when compared to a civic.

what kind of car do you have? an 04 vic?

and you are asking if springs from a prelude would fit?

springs dont even cost a lot, so get ones that are made for your car, talk to

curb weight on a 01 prelude is 3042lbs. Curb weight on a 05 ex civic is 2652lbs. Thats a huge difference in weight. If you put those springs on, your vic would probably look like a raised 4x4....lol.

Just buy used springs off a member here. I bought my neuspeed springs off a member here for $120 shipped new in box.
