Default Lowering integra problems?

I have a 2000 silver acura integra

I have completely re done its body(cosmetically)

I would like to now lower the front end about .5-1 inch but don't want to spend too much on eg. Coil overs or new springs

Is there another method to lowering besides cutting springs ??

Please and thanks

The only good option is getting new springs. Cutting springs seriously effs things up. Tein makes excellent suspension products.

If you don't want to quickly chew up the tires, you'll want to have an adjustable camber kit installed as well, so factor in that cost.

not really best and cheapest way is to buy new springs and shocks such as eibach springs and koni yellow shocks or if you have enough money get ground control coilovers with koni yellow shocks. don't cut your springs as this will cause problems with your suspension and its also dangerous.

You don't need a camber kit just make sure to get an alignment once a year to correct the toe to factory specs so you won't wear out your tires really fast.

everyone in my area cut springs ! we find it way better then aftermarket . aftermarket makes ride stiff which hurts the car when yu hit a pothole. since cut springs have more of a stiff bounce its easy on the car when yu hit potholes . just our preference
