Why would you wanna be on stock struts? You should have aftermarket struts especially w/ a drop like that.

If its the $$$ thats holding you back then. Save the $$ until you can get the aftermarket struts. You'll blow out those stock struts in no time.

Haha u must have some special struts lol. But u right it does depend on the drop. But it looks like he wants to be slammed. There's no way those stock struts will last over a month. Plus the ride quality is another thing he needs to consider w/ the size of the tires & rims combo he has.

Rease3- You need to also take into account that you'll need a camber kit and alignment. Not every1 does that, but i doubt you'll want to buy tires every 2 months b/c of immature tire wear.

i kinda want to make my tires tuck or mayb be able to fit 1 finger between the wheel gap like in my signature does any one know what springs will do that that will work with stock struts?
if it's looks your after, quick and easy setup would be H&R race springs with tokico illumina shocks :TU:

i put that combo in my friend's 96 integra. with 15x6.5" nippon pro spec-3s (buddy club replicas, same style as the rims on the civic in your sig) and 195/50/15 yoko avs tires, it looked killer :TU:

well i hav 17's give me a good package...that will sit a lil higher that the 1 in my sig
the springs and shocks are what give you the tuck at the fenderwell. the lowest and safest tire you can get for a 17" wheel for a honda is 205/40/17. i'd still go with H&R Race on illuminas with said tires and it should be low enough for what you want :TU:


if you want to get your overall ride height lower, you need to make the wheel smaller and keep the smallest possible tire size on it. the lowest i know of would be 15x6.5 wheel with a 195/50/15 tire

i think the only lower springs are neuspeed race or intrax super sports both of which are 2.5" at all corners (intrax super sports aren't normally stocked by retailers and they're hit and miss on ebay). the neuspeed race are 2.5" F and 2.3" R if i'm not mistaken.

if you're going to go 2.0" or lower, id strongly recommend aftermarket shocks because oem units won't be able to handle so low of a drop without compromising ride quality. i have the illuminas myself and i love the adjustments on them and the ride quality you get with the various settings :TU:.

my friend that i installed the set on his integra really liked them as well
