New Prelude owner

Hello, I just purchased a 1998 Prelude. The previous owner lowered the car by cutting the springs. I want to raise it back up to stock or close. Is this something I can do myself (I have average mechanical skills) A local shop quoted me around 500 for new springs, alignment and install. I probably need new axles too.

The car drives fine. Great infact but it is too low with the road conditions and speed bumps.
Thanks,
Indgroove

Yea, you can do it yourself. Its not too hard, but I would have a buddy help you. Sometimes they require a little muscle to squeeze out.
