    first what you do is remove the factory struts so thats the three nuts on the top then dissconect the bottom of the strut from the axels and sterring and un screw the brake line from the strut when you have the strut off you whould have to pop the shock be careful when you have aredy poped it put the after market ajustuble ring on the shock then place the spring over it then the top ring then put the shock together the same way you took it apart .after you got it assembled put the factory strut back in place connect every thing back up then ajust to the hight you whant if you dont no ***** about cars and dont have the proper tools dont do it youre self look for a local speed shop were you can buy the coilovers and get a free installation since youre in new york i cant recoment any shops as far as headers and exaust since you have a civic there is alot of stuff you can buy for it best bet is to go to a store and get a super street magizine or a import tuner magizine and theres allways www.optionsautosalon.com or asylumms.com

    Replace the front springs with drop springs, then replace the shocks with airbags Same thing goes for the back.

    Ohh ok...no not airbags found in the car... they replace the shocks and with a compressor, and an air tank, you can adjust the ride height. That is how you lower a truck to the ground I will explain more if you want.

    I will draw a diagram up for you tonight and put it on here - about $1000 for 4 airbags, compressor, air tank, valves, plumbing, and wiring. If you get better stuff, the price jumps up.

    You could always cut your springs a couple rungs. Extremely ghetto and not the safest thing, but should do the trick for VERY CHEAP!

    On imports there are things to look out for when lowering your car. . . its a Civic hatch right? First off i would suggest you step down to 16's or 17's. And 18" rim just adds unwanted weight and your top end will ****. . . i have 17's on my civic coupe and there is a noticable decrease in the top end speed of the car. Alsoif you lower the car more then a inch and a half you will more then likely need to get a Camber Kit. This allows you to adjust the lean of the tires in or out and preventing wear on your tires. . .

    If you decide to go with coil overs, Matrix Coilovers are good for civics and they are in-expensive. If you want more reliability and a stiffer ride go with Skunk II or ground Control. . .

    If you wanted to lower the car with lowering springs. . . i wouldnt touch anything other then Echibach springs for your car.



    You may not like my ricer. . . . but my combat wing looks better on my Civic then it does your V6 Mustang - Ricer-X
