like it says asking people with 1.5 lowering spring (15 or 16 inch wheels as well) to post up some pics prefer 92-00 civics.! the susp. setup i just bought is 1.5 inch i know it will take time to settle and what not but i want to see what im in store for? i wanted to buy full coilovers and slam it but for the money i couldnt pass the deal up i got! plus i think this setup along with some nice swaybars and a traction bar should be good for 300+ hp jumping off the line on the track!

Check out this. I guy is selling H&R Sports. Lower the front 1.75" and the back 1.5"

He has pics of what his ride looked like before and after he put them on. This may help you see where you will be sitting at after a 1.5" drop.
thats mine with 40mm springs in it and 17's (same height as a 205/45/16 or a 205/50/15)

1.5" isn't gonna look hardly any lower... but you will have better handling, so it all good.... 2.5+" drop ftw...

eeeh... depends. When you first put it on, you can't tell a BIG difference but it is noticeable. Once it settles it's fine. With a 1.5" drop your tires aren't tucked in the wheel well but have a little bit of a tucked look. You will have about .5"-1" from the top of the tire to the bottom of the fender. It also depends on the model, year and size of rim/tire so keep that in mind.
Ill get some pics tomorrow. But my 1.5-1.6 the fronts sit just under the fenderwell and the rear is almost at the tire top.

how long did it take everyones springs to settle? my rears are close but OBVIUOSLY with no motor in my car its taking a little longer on fronts
i think ur supose to drive round for them to settle
lol im sure the driving helps them settle! BUT im in process of installing motor and doing a full tuck so im up in the air if i think im going to like the 1.5 inch drop with 15's..

i LOVE slamming a car on the ground (not with crappy stuff nice products) but for the coupe i really am going to be going for a stiff track setup suspension ( swaybars upper lower lca's strutbars nrg h brace ect ect)
just getting some extra input!:)
GOOD springs don't settle

H&R Sports, 16" Rims, KYB AGX 4 way adj. Struts
The front looks higher then it really is due to the curve of the driveway.

tokico springs will settle......and then the blues get blown.

They are not the quality of other makers.
sowill a set of omni powers or skunk2 coilvers (not full just sleeves) be better than these? or ground controls?
