    I am gettin ready to purchase some tokico hp shocks with tokico springs rated for a 1.5" drop. (atleast thats what the description reads) I have a 99 ex coupe civic. I know i'll be able to tell a diff in handling and such, but will i be able to tell a diff in looks? Anyone got any pics of a coupe or hatchback with about a 1.5 inch drop? before and after preferably. thanks

    I don't have pics right now, but I'll tell you that you can tell a difference with out a doubt.

    I can't speak for the tokico springs or for the HP's but I know that I love my setup with eibach prokits and tokico illuminas (I autoX so it's nice to have the adjustability)

    I have the Eibach Sportlines with the Tokico HP's and it dropped it about an 1 1/2" and I think it is perfect (not too low), I live in LA so I have to think about that with all the potholes. But YES you will definitely notice a difference.

    i have h&r springs and the tokico illuminas. The car handles like a dream theres alot less body roll around corners. And the aggressive look is bad ass. You will enjoy.

    H&R's are probably lower and a lot stiffer, depending on if you get the street or the race springs.
