TYPE SH OWNERS HELP

Hello Lude owners! I am new to this forum and new to the Prelude community, it's coming up to be my first year with my 1997 Prelude Type Sh this June, anyways I think it is time to lower it and I have browsed hundreds of forums on lowering Type SH's and found it's a pretty infamous topic. I came to the conclusion that you can run any shocks/struts on the SH as long as you put new springs on simultaneously but I'm still sceptical as other people said you can't. I found a set up I want to order, but I can't find any reviews from an SH owner. Have you heard of KYB GR-2 shocks/struts on a SH? I will be running Tein S tech lowering springs with them. (Link below) Will this combo work fine on a Type SH?? Just want to make sure before I buy them and learn something about my car.

Any feedback will help I am new to the car scene and am slowing learning:) Unfortunately I haven't met any friends that can help with my car yet so thanks to whoever replies.

Re: TYPE SH OWNERS HELP

Type SH springs are taller which mean the perch on the shock tower is lower. I mistakenly ordered Base shocks and when I compressed the springs, it looked distorted and dangerous.

So logic would dictate that aftermarket springs and shocks would work fine since you are not dealing with the factory shock anymore, its level playing field now.

I ended up ordering BC Coilovers (height and dampening function) for about a grand. I think its worth it if you are going to keep the car for a while and if you change your mind about ride height or dampening later on, you don't have to buy new setup.

I dial it soft-er for long distance drives and hard-er for local driving. That flexibility is worth the extra $$$.

Hope that helped.
