    Slamming a car to the ground isn't cool. All you need is an inch and a half, to two and a half inch drop. The whole point of lowering the car is to make it handle better.

    Do you even know what suspension components you're going to be using? Don't buy cheap ebay crap, that shit just breaks. What is your budget?

    assuming you have the correct tire size on your 16" wheels you should be able to lower it at least 2.5" before rubbing becomes an issue..... that should be enough to start tucking tires a little if thats the road you want to go down...

    i recommend some springs that lower your car somewhere between 1.5" and 2.0". more than that and you will sacrifice ride and handling. you will need to spend around $500 to lower your car the correct way. you will want to pick up some springs and a set of shocks, preferably adjustables like KYB AGXs. as far as springs, H&R sports and Neuspeed sports are definitely favorites for ride and handling.

    eibach pro kits dont lower your car much.... you will still have a decent fender gap, although the ride and handling will be nice. i have had them before and i liked them except for the fender gap.

    ive had nothing but great experiences with skunk 2 lowering springs and strutts
    thye can be hard for under 500 and give a nice stance and very nice ride while increasing handling i put them on my eg coupe and my 94 lude and i was happy with both sets

    I recommend Ksports, True Coilover systems. Best bang for the buck compared to TEINS or anyother Coilover kit out there. Complete adjustability on height and dampening control.

    Let me know if you are interested.


    This picture is for the 88-91 Preludes, but I just wanted to show you a sample.

    In would think about camber kits unless you like going through tires every 15-20K miles and they need to be alligned after....so add around $250-400 more for those installed and wheels alligned.
