man I got the same damn problem with my o3 si. I just want springs untill i can afford A really good suspension, but all I find lower my car only 1.25 or 2.00 inch. I was going to use the skunk 2 coilovers but i have no good word of that product. SO if you find any good ways to lower our cars let me in on the secret.rodneycivic said:does anyone know what suspension lowers the 05' civic si the most? i used neuspeed race springs and skunk2 coilovers and have gotten about the same result. the rear lowers and the front doesnt.
Yess umm... like I like my stock look .....yes...... stock. :wow:K2e2vin said:funny, my friend's dodge neon has the same problem(he got adjustable springs, only the back lowers, and the fronts stay the same. they also both use struts). i dont know if the EP suspension is the same, but you guys look into the techniques they use on lowering AE86s and other cars; strut shortening. for the ae86, its basically shortening the strut casing. other ways are relocating the perch, cutting the perch and just weld the sleeve on, cutting the perch off, and relocate the mounting points. here's a article from Club4ag: http://www.club4ag.com/faq and tech_pages/Short Stroke Conversion.htm
looks like alot of work but should be cheaper than getting full coilovers.
also, for the guys with double wishbone suspension, just thought i show you this nice article on shortening the shocks: http://faq.ef-honda.com/index.php?sid=44749&aktion=artikel&rubrik=007&id=28&lang=en
