Got struts, but what springs?

So I have a BNIB set of tokico illumina adjustables for my '97 but I'd like a nice set of springs to go with em. I was hoping for a little drop, preferablly nothing over an inch. From what I've found, tanabe and tein h-techs seem to be closest.

Anyone have experience with the illuminas? likes, dislikes?

Also, with the 5th gens, are there any parts I should plan on buying due to them breaking. On my accord, it was pretty much guarenteed that you would break half of the bolts when changing springs.

i would seriously consider getting the neuspeed sports or H&R sports they are about a 1.5 drop, IMO they looks good and still perfect for a DD. I have the tein s-techs(.7 lower than the h-techs.1.5) but they are way too soft

You can't go wrong with tokicos.

You shouldn't really break anything as long as you do it the right way(you like using a spring compressor and what not)

good luck with the drop bro

ok thanks. Im looking more into the neuspeeds. They seem pretty dang nice. With a 1.5 drop i know a camber kit isn't NECESSARY, but would it help a decent amount? I want to do this drop right in every way so I don't have to worry about it or mess with it in a couple months.

If you wait, Imma have some Neuspeeds for sale soon. Just ordered some H&R race springs today. Check my member's ride page to see the drop they give you. The stance is great, but it's softer ride than I like, which is good if you like a comfy ride. I like it stiffer for the best handling possible.

as long as you get a good alignment you should have no uneven wear or anything like that. i have a 1.7 drop for around maybe 10k miles and i cant see any uneven wear yet so you should be fine
