    springs and some new shocks depending how low you wanna drop it...or u could get coilovers but they will make your car bounce like crazy..

    Coilvers DO NOT make your car bounce like crazy.

    Cutting springs, or having your car bottom out from wearing out your shocks with performance springs make your car bounce.

    please DONT do that either.. car magazines are some of the worst information provided. They misquote numbers on hp, tq, upgrades, and suspension. They fuck up on a daily basis. You get them for the entertainment value, not to learn how to do shit.

    Go to a Honda tech forum, where you find EXPERTS and many hobbiest that work on their cars and give great information on how to do things right.

    why not just get some eibach springs, they vary dependant on the amount of lowering..



    if you are really wanting to do a full upgrade, get springs + shocks... there's a ton of suspention work you can do...


    but from what i've seen, the easiest way is just go with springs... however, that can wear out your shocks cause they aren't used to the new height... I could be wrong.. might wanna go with both.

    I'm not sure the cost on import type cars.


    but lets say a rough figure:


    4x shocks = $400-450 (dependant on what model/brand you choose)
    4x springs = $200-250 (dependant on what brand you choose)
    Labor/Installation - $400 (about $150 at least a side)


    A good figure would be roughly plan to spend about 1 grand total....
