Help on lowering springs

Hey guys I have a 94 Prelude V-Tec w/ the oem rims. I kinda got no money right now for rims, but I was wondering what kind of lowering springs would be good for my car. I want to drop a couple of inches though. Maybe not to pricey but good at the same time, thanks!

Re: Help on lowering springs

if you want a pretty good drop then skunk2 springs are a good option about 2.5inch. If you want a subtle drop then tein lowering springs work great about a 1.5inch drop. Or you could get some adjustable coilover springs. They give you full adjustability but will make your ride feel like crap but thats what you get when you go cheap. I have lowering springs now and im upgrading to full coilovers soon because i dont like the ride quality. So if you can wait a little longer and save up about 700 bucks then you should spend your money on coils instead of springs.

full coilovers> FUNCTION & FORM TYPE 1 HEIGHT ADJUSTABLE COILOVERS - 92-01 PRELUDE :: PRELUDE :: HONDA :: COILOVERS :: SUSPENSION :: weksos industries

adjustable coil springs> GROUND CONTROL SLEEVE OVER COILOVERS 92-01 PRELUDE **FOR KYB & STOCK SHOCKS** :: PRELUDE :: HONDA :: COILOVERS :: SUSPENSION :: weksos industries

skunk2 springs> Skunk2 Racing: 1993-01 PRELUDE(ALL)

tein stech springs> TEIN STECH (92-96 PRELUDE) :: PRELUDE :: HONDA :: LOWERING SPRINGS :: SUSPENSION :: weksos industries

You can do your research and find MANY other brands for any of these options these are just my personal likings.

Re: Help on lowering springs

I got a 94 prelude S and i got the Skunk2 drop springs. I love the drop on em, best drop height w/o killing your ride quality. Yea bumps will hit a bit harder, but rides a lot better than my first car Ford Focus which was dropped like 3.25" (bad car lol) But to me I think they are best bang for your book if your going just for looks. But if your going for performance as well i'd go save the extra $ and get full coilovers. If you want pics I can send you some via email or on here I'll post some up just ask.

Re: Help on lowering springs

The shop I go to for parts said he can get me a full D2 coilover set for $900. Is that a good deal?
