STOCK SPRINGS/COILOVERS

Hey guys,

i caame here hoping i could get some help.....
i recently purchased my first car which is a 1995 honda prelude sr.
and im having some problems with the ride height and clearance.
i recently got this sick bodykit which was already painted and all for my car, but the problem is that my ride height and clearance is too low.

when i bought the car it already came lowred 2inches all around im wondering if any of you guys know how to raise my car as it is or should i have to buy some OEM stock coilovers or springs? and if so where i could get them off?

i just spent like 700 dollars on 17 inch rims and they fit perfect and the car runs well with em just that i dont have clearance and its really hard to even pull out of my driveway.

hope someone knows the answer lol.


thanks.

Re: STOCK SPRINGS/COILOVERS

well, if you already have adjustable coilovers on it, its quite simple. underneath the spring there is a threaded seat. twisting it up makes the car higher, twist it down makes it lower. its that simple. just be sure to make each corner equal

Re: STOCK SPRINGS/COILOVERS

Ooorrr you could take off the body kit, replace it with a lip kit and keep it at the height it's at. Just my opinion.
