Re: RSR Lowering springs??

THey are showing to be 1.6 front and 1.2 rear lowering springs. Is that too drastic on the front of these cars?

Re: RSR Lowering springs??

No that is not too low. I have more then a 2" drop all the way around. You from Cali? I see the route 66 in the background of your bike.

Re: RSR Lowering springs??

man thing to remember man
quality costs money. i wouldn't trust springs that cost 75 after shipping unused.
if you want some quality springs go ebiach*(spelling im drunk) or tein
they get alot of good reviews on here. also i would not suggest going with lowering springs only. there alot of good quality affordable coilover systems out there that really improve the lude's handling

Re: RSR Lowering springs??

Well sorry to steal your thread but... oh, also nice cars and bikes:)

I'm also looking to lower my car in the near future. While I have also considered coilovers, I've been told not to get them because they will easily cease since I drive my Prelude in the winter as well and that I should probably just get springs and shocks. Can anyone confirm this?

Re: RSR Lowering springs??

don't thread jack bro thats just rude

1st try the search function if that fails
make a new thread in the proper section

as for your question i do not see why a quality set of coilovers will fail in cold weather..ive never had an issue with any of my other cars i cannot say for a lude but for any other vehicle ive had ive not had one problem with a good set of coilovers in any weather

Re: RSR Lowering springs??

I had these springs on oem shock to be lowered for temporary. In my opinion, I love how they ride. Not too stiff, but not so soft. For example, stock spring and oem shock from a soft 1-10 stiff rating, #1 rating as STOCK. I give these spring + oem shock a #3. Not bumpy and smooth. I only have one picture of the drop on 18" wheels


Give them a shot. I don't think you'll regret it. I sure didn't

Hope my opinion helps on your decision.

Re: RSR Lowering springs??

I've never heard of RSR making racing springs... I wouldn't trust them. When it comes to suspension, do it once, do it right, and don't fu*k around.

Re: RSR Lowering springs??

Dont get me wrong here.....I am sure some will...but this is a 10 year old Honda, I am not going to go ballz deep on modding it price wise, I will mod it tastefully and do it on a budget, my wife thinks I am stupid for doing anything to it at all other than tint the windows.

So If I can lower it for $75 and do it myself like I do most things, and it looks better and rides about the same...cool. Hell these things ride like crap to begin with so it cant ride much rougher lol.

Re: RSR Lowering springs??

It'll ride a lot worse especially if you plan on sticking them on stock struts.

Re: RSR Lowering springs??

I may just hold off on lowering it for now then. Get some wheels then lower. Good thing is the car only has 62k on it so the struts should be pretty sound still.

djp what are your wheels on the 4th gen?
