Hey everybody, stumbled across this board and was lookin for some experienced owners like yourselfs to give me some advice :) (notice the brown nose already in my first official post )

Anyways, i just got ahold of a 98 4dr accord (white) and was wondering in everybody's opinion what type of stuff should i do first. I was wanting to lower it a few inches.. to fill in the wheelwell gap..

also wanting to get clear lights all around, but not sure exactly what brand name to look for or anything. this car is replacing my 89 civic WOOT and man that was a piece of dog vomit.. heh. Actually it was a great car, never had engine problems.. but just looked like crap. Anyways this is my first honda that i will start actually putting some work into. (media, looks, engine and whatnot)

So hopefully you'll welcome a "noob" when it comes to cars. heh.. hey i've got a modded computer case.. does that count? heh.

Thanks in advance,
HOnk

cough...vtec not vtech...cough:D but anyway if you want some cheap things that will make your car look better from the outside you could start off w/ clearing your headlights. then you could change the taillights if you wanted to. a drop is always good next and then from there you can look into kits and stuff like that.

suspension

Damn, back down to my first post. Well, at least the site is back up!

Man, if you got fims on your ride already, you better hurry up and drop that thing. Do up that suspension, then mod that engine. you need speed, well I need speed.

hehe Yea i've already got rims and tires on it..

I want to lower it probably next.. not sure where to take it. I was thinking les schwab (i'm not sure if they are all over the country or just on the west coast) but does anybody have any feedback if thats a good place to take it to be done.

I want it done proffesionally, i have a friend with a 99 acura integra that he just cut the springs ghetto style and that car rides like a shopping cart.

it really doesnt matter where you get it installed, it mostly matters what kind of springs/shocks you drop it with. just get a good spring/shock or coilover combo and take it to a decent shop that knows how to do it on your car and you should be good.

i have a modded case too :)
i would say start with rims...once you have that you will know how much to lower it
and with clear lights i dont think brand matters...just whatever looks good to you go ahead and get it
also, if its a man. than go with for engine mods
but if its an auto, go for looks
have fun with it
