Shocks and springs can anybody help me out ??

Hi everybody!

Im new to the forums as i just bought a 2001 base model prelude. I love the car but the biggest problem with is that the car is lowered and the dropped suspension has caused some serious problems. Long story short my best option is to raise the car to stock height. Does anybody no where i could find cheap original aftermarket shocks and springs for my car? If anybody can help me out with this it would be much appreciated because im on a tight budget after having dropped the bank on buying this bad boy.

Thanx guys ! :)

As he said it's not smart to go cheap on the suspension but go to rockauto. Com and look at struts there for good aftermarket parts on the cheap.Personaliy I would suggest KYB for some stock.as for springs they carry them too but Idk how good they are.you might wanna hit up a junk yard for springs.

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.

Do you have the original shocks on the car?
Try aftermarket shocks.
My car was scary with stock shocks and lowering springs.
