Icon5 My car is too low!!!!

Hi evry1,

i bought a Prelude H reg a couple of weeks ago and the car is riding too low, looked great at the time but is a nightmare to live with!!!!
I tried to get new springs and shocks by calling my main Honda dealer but they said it is no longer in production (the parts of course). Someone suggested coilover kits but here in the UK it is really expensive to get hold of a decent kit with prices around 600 pound sterling ( $1100???). Is there anywhere i can get hold of some original or cheap aftermarket parts or even cheap coilover kits (would really prefer coilover)???? Please bear in mind i am a student and therefore have the budget of a student... Third generation Prelude... Thanks.

Re: My car is too low!!!!

Chassis spark is a good thing. Just make sure it's not any vital parts. Also look into Ground Control coilovers, they slip over any shock/strut. Good luck!
