    Coilovers - need help.

    Im looking at purchasing coilovers for my car now its a local mail order place and these are the coil overs for a Honda they are offering .

    TI-330190 Honda 1.6 EL 97-00, Honda Integra 88-01, Honda Civic 88-90, Honda CRX 88-91, Honda DEL SOL 93-97, Honda Prelude 90-91

    -330290 Honda 2.2 CL 97-01, Honda Accord 90-97, Honda Prelude 92-96

    Will any of these fit our cars? or do i need ones just for the 86-89 models ?

    I'd think that the the one on the top could be droped down lower than the one on the bottom(as you have them listed). In other words either kit should work.

    Why do you want coilover? Will you really want to raise and lower the car frequently? Won't you just drop it and leave it?

    I've asked myself that question about just dropping it and actually I'd like to do that but I'm thinking coilovers allow you to dial in the drop better. If I knew for certain that a Sprint 2.25" (for instance) spring would drop the car to a good height and look balanced front to rear then I'd just save 200 or so bucks and get those. But thing is I might not get the balanced drop and then I'm stuck with what I get. With the coilovers I can set the drop right were I like it and then leave it. But another issue is that coilovers, as reported in the forums anyway, seem to break kinda often. I would not be changing the coilovers much if at all after I got the balance I liked, but I'm thinking that springs don't leave ya with any options, you get what you get and that's it.

    Well I'm glad to here from both you guys that you don't just want them to want them for no real reason over reg lowering springs.

    Yes you can use 90-97 coilover kits. But realize that the 4 and 5th gen accords have longer struts. What that has ment to the 3rd gen people that have used those kits on their car's is that they can't always go as low as they want at both ends of the car. If you think you'll want to go below 2.5"-2.75" you should consider the ground-controls or someother brand (that you can trust) that makes coilovers specifically for our cars.
