Suspension

So I am planning on a full "makeover" on my '00 Prelude. It runs great and ive taken great care of it and so I decided to do this instead of buying a new daily driver.

One of the alterations Im planning on doing is lowering the car (approximately 1.5''). After hours of using your search button and reading dozens of threads, Im pretty sure I know what I want to do and I just want to verify that I understood everything enough to make this decision (after knowing absolutely nothing about suspensions a day ago).

-I will not be racing or tracking this car
-I sometimes go on 3-4 hour drives around the state to work a weekend in other cities.
-The roads are in pretty good condition here and where I need to drive to.
-I want to be able to adjust the height if I need to for different situations and I like having options in case I don't like the height Im at.
-Im probably getting 18X7.5 +48 wheels (maybe 17x7.5)

So after all the reading it im pretty sure I want an adjustable coilover set (vs springs). I don't need a full race package or anything and the most popular option for my needs seems to be Ground Control coilovers with yellow Koni struts. Am I heading in the right direction? Im also getting a $3k paint job, new headlights at a little under $1k (from a retro making member on here), and $1.5k rims with tires so I don't want to spend too much more than I have to, but I have the money if there are other recommendations out there or other parts im forgetting.

Thanks again for reading and I appreciate any help.

Re: Suspension

The Koni/GC is a great setup, as you've read. I know you said you arne't planning on tracking the car, but over 90% of the successful AutoXers run that setup too, then change tyres and drive their cars home. Bushings are also a good thing to upgrade while you're working in the area. They're not a part you can brag about, but def a great addition.

As for the rest, sounds pretty good, and as long as you go with what you want (don't let the haters get in the way - if you want something and you like it then get it) you'll be very happy with the result.

Thanks man, ill definitely look into the bushings. And I know what you mean about haters, heh. A lot of ppl don't want me changing the color of my car because its rare, but I just can't stand green!
