    :werd: what kind of ride you looking to have? Rough/bumpy or soft /smooth? Cause if you want soft/smooth dont cut you springs. But it is the easiest. All you do is shorten the length of your stock springs but cutting them with a hack saw or other metal cutting tool.

    I just want to maintain decent ride quality while lowering it just an inch or two.

    come on guy's...be nice. This poor kid would probably go cut his springs if we told him to ........ even though you did answer his question...it is the cheapest way.

    K dude, the cheapest way to lower you car will be to buy a set of lowering springs. The Eibach pro kit or sportlines would do just fine. They will lower your car 1.25" (pro) to 1.8" (sport) and will maintain stock ride quality. They'll cost you about $150+- and will take around 0.5-0.75 Hours per shock to have them installed by a shop.

    Any other questions, just ask.

    Well let's see, I'm just getting into cars. I don't know much about suspension work. I have a 95 EG civic w/b18b1 fully built with all skunk2 parts (helps when you know people who work @ skunk2) that i just recently had put in. I just want to lower my car a bit without going crazy into suspension mods.

    After more research I've decided to go with TEIN lowering springs, KYB/AGX gas shocks.

    hey, if your suspension is too soft, doesn't that effect the handling of your ride? i mean i would think it would, right?
