    Well for those of you who pay attention to me, you know a buddy of mine (chevy guy) got a civic hatch. he really likes it, but doesnt like how high it rides. he is a lil strapped for cash and wants to lower the car. performace ability isnt a must for him (since he thinks cars should only be fast in a straight line). Do yall see any problem with him going with a skunk2 or apc (something like that) coil over kit. I know they arent true coil overs, but for his application, i think they might work.

    I truely believe that for springs alone, you just can't beat neuspeed.

    Best I've ever ridden on/worked with.

    I've seen mixed reviews... the people I know personally who own them love the Tein springs, but some people bitch about them not being stiff enough. I don't think they're meant to be serious performance springs- just lowering with a nice ride that's a bit stiffer than stock.
