Skunk 2 will make your car look fantastic, Tokico Illumina are good struts but I hear nothing but good things about the koni yellows alot. I have H&R lowering springs on KYB Gr2 and it rides great but if I had $700 to spend I would go with the koni adjustable for sure...

you don't have to make the same thread in like 3 sections dude. completely unnecessary. and it's not that hard to pick out a suspension. compare and choose

It feels smooth to me I don't feel or hear every bump that I come across and my car has a great look also. I heard that the skunk 2 are kind of bumpy but will make your car look great....

MAYBE YOU SHOULD POST 13 MORE THREADS, THEN YOU MIGHT GET AN ANSWER!

Or you can rely less on other people giving you answer and you can do some research like everyone else. It seriously shouldn't take 3 weeks to pick which suspension you want.
If you have $700 to spend, get coilovers, a good pick would be Function and Form Type I's, since they're in your price range. If you really want adjustable dampening then save like $150 more and get D2 coilovers.

Re: TRYING TO LOWER MY 2001 PRELUDE! NEED SOME HELP

there is very little reason to need a suspension upgrade ASAP. that being said, save up money and get a set of D2 coilovers.

The way you type, you're one of those people I would like to kick in the teeth. Good luck with your upgrades.

Yeah, pick a ride height that you want, then pick out some springs and struts based on the riding conditions that your car will face. I can't go too low here in Ny, these back roads get tore up in places so its a major concern when choosing my suspension which I am also currently contemplating..

Re: TRYING TO LOWER MY 2001 PRELUDE! NEED SOME HELP

i say koni yellow with GC sleeves is the best bang for the buck. custom spring rates, adjustable ride height. affordable. around your budget. if you save up just another 100-200, you can find great used coilovers. ie, megan, d2, function and forms...

Dont even waste time with springs nor buying piece by piece... Buy Coilovers if you want a SOLID and smooth ride. Function & Form are very good coilovers and not to expensive here is a straight link to some
