There is no way that thats dropped 1.3" its gotta be more. What size rims and tires are you on. I measured today with my 205/40/17 tires i have 4" wheel gap in the back and 3.25" in the front. That means after rims i should have just under 2" in the front and about 2.7" in the back. Your car looks like there's only one-1.5" all around so how does that work. Suspension is so confusing to me. I only wanna drop my car a little bit but it seems like the manufacturers cant even figure out how much they're going to drop.

he's got a 25.1" wheel diameter. yours is 23.4". so that makes a big difference.

miklovo is an unknown quantity at this point
^^^he's right you gotta remember i'm dropped on 18s, lotsa more rim.

Hold up let me try this post thing that electric130 just taught me:



haha I got it!!!

If you had the same H&R setup the top of your tire would be about to where the crest of my rim is..

Thank you guys so much. I guess that would make up that extra inch of diameter. Im still debating which springs to buy tho the pro-kit or H&Rs cuz i can get a set of used H&Rs with about 3000km on em for $75 or i can spend 200 and buy a prokit. But for the H&Rs id probs need a camber kit.

^you will need a camber kit for either drop... I'm paying the price now for riding on a lowered car w/o a camber kit (prokit)

lowering springs last forever tho.. you should get the H&R's imo.

how come no one is bitching about stock shocks , i thought if you switch the stock springs, the shocks have to go as well..

^depends on the amount of drop, if you go something like 2" or more drop.. the shocks will blow very quickly.. but if you do something mild like 1-1.75 they seem to hold up...

I replaced mine because the ride sucked.. the blues make me feel like stock again

click the thumbnail so the pic shows as an attachment. in the new window with the pic, copy the address. this is it:

https://www.civicforums.com/forums/a...1&d=1173770654

now, put the [img] tags around it by using the little yellow mountain icon and this is the result:




Keep posting pics of that sweet ride and we'll get you straight!

ok well im not tryin to argue but i have read on this site and i'll quote "There's only one spring kit that doesnt need a camber kit and thats the eibach prokit" and this was comin from a pretty reputable member. But i guess if i need a camber kit i might as well buy the H&Rs
