Exclamation Need Advice...Should I raise it back up?

I'm gonna be puttin my Civic up for sale in September but before that I have a few things to do to it first.

One thing I'm considering is putting the OEM coils back in and taking out the Neuspeed Sports I have in there now.

The front struts are '04's as I got them from Honda for free for all the crap I went through with all the other sets I had. The rears are original.

I'm a little worried about how they'll react at full height after being beaten on from a 1.75" drop but I think it might help sell the car if it's on OEM coils.

this of course means an allignment as well.

what do you think?

tired of it I guess. I've had it built all up once before and then parted it out...then I sorta stated again and just couldn't get into it. I used to ride motoX and always wanted to try sport bikes....now that one of my good friends has been riding for a couple of years I have someone to ride with...dunno, just want a change. the older civic is for rain/snow.

Berg_Tomaru is an unknown quantity at this point
I suggest you to go for stock height, much easier to sell and you'll get more money from parting out also

yeah put up the car before you sell it. I would do it because modified cars are considered unreliable so if the suspension has been modified, potential buyers will consider that and not want to purchase it, or might not like the way a lowered car drives.

back to stock. you will have a much bigger customer base than with a powered car.

lol that was funny^^ i was like wtf does that mean "powered car" then i realized he meant lowered. lol. i thought you could get more money for a modified car? because so many people are modding now that they look for cars dropped with rims. i dont think im gonna bring my car back to stock when i sell it unless you guys really think you can get more money after parting it out.

you can def get more for a non lowered car. can then you are able to sell it to ANYONE. when the car is modded you only have a normally teenagers and people in their young to mid 20s. lowers the amount of people you can sell to. so you will take anything you can get for it.
