Honda Civic EK3 Lowering Springs

Postby Monstarr » May 2nd, 2012, 9:38 pm

Tuners,

Looking to put some lowering springs approx 2 inches drop or less on my Honda Civic EK3 97 hatch, however i am currently using the tokico shocks. Also riding on 17" rims 205/40 tires.

I want a normal drive without any bouncing or stiffness.

Any suggestions / recommendations how to proceed? Also a best buy?

you cannot get lowering spring without the stiff ride. but then again it depends on what you think stiff is.
what you need in your case is a progressive spring with a low spring rate. probably 180lbs/in
