Hey guys I'm asking the people that know they technical stuff....What is the best height to lower a Civic to get the best handeling? I know lowering your car makes handeling better, but when you lwoer it too much, it actually makes it worse. How much should I lower it to get the most handeling from my car? Thanks alot.

I think my Neuspeed sports / Bilstein HD's handle flawlessly!!
It's 1.75" fr / 1.5" rear

I am just not happy with the drop so I am getting GC's

i know what u are talking about lx98 Civic, you would think that neuspeed made their springs a little bit lower in the front to compensate for the gap in the front being a little bit bigger than the gap in the back, but after all that, the gap in the front is still larger than the gap in the rear....oh well, I guess a .25 inch difference does'nt do much huh? by the way....u know a good place where I can get your Bilsteins from? i checked already but their stuff is kinda pricey compared to other places online.
What I did:

1) called (got a quote)
2) called (who beat that quote)
3) called for a 2nd time (they beat shox's quote)

4) I was happy and bought there :)

If they both sell the Ground Control's I may do the same thing Monday :D


Yeah, I am pretty pissed about my Sports!! Even though the ride is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
