Ground Control - Coilover Conversion kit, 1992-2001 Honda Prelude

Just do it right the first time. You can also get custom spring rates for that price of $339.00 and they're Eibach's. Can't go wrong with that.

I was looking at these too but I would rather spend a little extra and get coil overs.

Yeah I second 01citylude, your going to need some aftermarket shocks/struts or your ride is going to be like **** and have blown OEM shocks in months. But for that price it isn't bad at all if you already have aftermarket struts

Skunk2 is very stiff. Had Neuspeed Race springs and they weren't even as stiff as the Skunk2's...

I have those and they're not bad. But don't buy these thinking they are all you will need to lower your car because your gonna need struts too..

Not trying to hate on anyone that has them or likes them but personally from I would stave away from coil overs unless you get the full coil over kit. Unless you like the feel of bull riding. and for $260 id get lowering springs, just my opinion.
