Trying to fix a F..d up 92 lude! Help!

I took my tires off and looked hoping I had coilovers, but just my luck I don't. I have lowering springs. I want to raise my lude to if not to original height or close enough. I'm on a budget and was wondering what do I need to do to raise it up?

It sounds like you would need to replace those springs with oem height.
I looked at Honda and they were only used on 4th gen preludes, so junkyard search limits you to only preludes if used will fit your needs.
Or you can try car-part.com for used already pulled and mailed to your door.

There is the option of new springs from honda parts now.com, or a prelude being sold as parts.
Sources there could be local facebook groups, craigslist, or perhaps a google search could land a local newspaper ad etc.

Any time you wonder what parts were used on other-than- prelude Honda made cars, while at honda parts now find said part number and type it into the 'search' bar. It'll populate the vehicles that shared that part.
Also do same at acura parts now. The other day before going junkyard shopping, my son was trying to find a 4th gen mirror and found the same part was used on the 91-95 integra....

I am going to be changing out my suspension on my 92 Prelude on Sunday (Pending on weather). I will be removing my stock springs and shocks. They are still in very good condition. If you are interested PM me.
