Alright, my friend bought some H&R springs (1.5" drop) and I bought the Tokico Performance (Tokico Blues) lowering kit for our Civics. We're getting estimates of about $120 dollars for installation services (the cheapest we could find anyways) and now we're wondering if it's really worth it. I read and printed the article on this very site about replacing springs and shocks but I've never done it before. The most I ever really work with cars is replacing the oil and rotating tires. I can get all the equipment as I know a garage that lets people rent tools and the garage for a day to do whatever they want, really cheap. Do you think replacing springs is a task for the absolute novice?
