Dropped my 04 LX! Before and after shots inside!

Dropped it yesterday. Ran into a couple unforseen problems, and it took longer than expected but it turned out great! The ride isn't near as bad as I thought it was going to be and it handles great. Let me know what you guys thing!

The second picture is dark to tell for sure. But from the looks of it, it looks great!

Re: Dropped my 04 LX! Before and after shots inside!

Thanks a lot guys.

Like I said it took longer than expected. I am going to try to get a couple more pictures today.

Are you wondering my entire setup for the car or just what I dropped it on? In the case of the latter, I dropped it with a kit from Ground Control. Some of the pieces needed a little trimming, but the kit was reasonably priced ($339) and so far (I know, it's only been one day) it works great. If anything changes I will post about it!

Re: Dropped my 04 LX! Before and after shots inside!

The rears settled. I am actually going to bring them up a bit to match the fronts.

I love my Enkeis... They compliment the car very well.

Yeah, the shocks are still stock. GC's on stock shocks.

I promise, I will get more pictures soon! Sorry for not being super fast. Been busy today!

Re: Dropped my 04 LX! Before and after shots inside!

Approx 2 inches front and back. I can get perfect measurements later if you REALLY want them

Not going to go any lower than it is. Winter is coming and I don't plan on using my Civic as a snow plow...

Re: Dropped my 04 LX! Before and after shots inside!

The grill is actually an Ebay grill. It is layered fiberglass and is surprisingly good quality. I painted it myself, it turned out pretty nice if I do say so myself. I got a pretty good deal on it too.

Re: Dropped my 04 LX! Before and after shots inside!

car loooks good i wouldnt say its slammed because you still have finger gaps. i beleive gc only goes 2.5 in the front. you need atleast 3.5 in the front on 15-16 to be slammed. i have 3 which is close but still not there. haha

Re: Dropped my 04 LX! Before and after shots inside!

i need to get mine a bit lower. I bought my eibach pro kit off a kid for 50 bucks about a year ago and didnt put them on until i got my rims, but i deff want to go lower. Im using tokico dspec shocks and they are great.

What GC's did you get? are all GC's ajustable? How hard/easy are they to adjust?

Re: Dropped my 04 LX! Before and after shots inside!

The ground control website says they are adjustable from 0" to 2.5" However... the front is all the way down and the back is all the way up on my coilovers, so I am not sure they were 100% correct.

I just got the basic coilover conversion kit for 03-up Civic's. It was $339 + shipping (to Alaska, free for lower 48). They are fully adjustable and are fairly easy to adjust. I can adjust them right through my wheels, so I imagine it would depend on your wheel if you had to take it off or not...

I would recommend it. After driving it for over a week it has been great. The ride is nice too.
