    I was wondering about how much or how many coils I should cut off the integra springs to fit my 94' civic?? I know if I just slap them on, it will sit too high!......:confused:

    if you have the money to either buy a civic with a GSR swap or bought the swap and put it in you should be able to spend $250 bucks for decent lowering springs. cmon. spend a little now, or cut and spend alot later.

    Don't ever cut your springs. Like TurboMirage said, the right will only get worse. Cutting the springs messes with the spring rates.

    Check out eBay or Craigslist for some cheap stock springs, or just pony up and buy some nice after-market ones. You should probably just buy the after-market ones now, that way you're not disassembling your shock/spring assemblies multiple times.

    if its good enough?
    why does everybody think they have gold?
    theyre stock springs, any offer should be good enough. nobody WANTS them, they may need them for some lame reason or another, but i can get stock springs all day long for about $20.
    you should just take any offer you get, i usually throw my stock springs away, bc nobody wants to buy them.
