You will eventually have to change your shocks to some sort of sport dampers, they may or may not be gas

remember you will prob need a camber kit, to correct negetive/positive camber or you will go through a lot of tires

your frammerstat has to be aligned, with the shezzle rods. but only the 4 inch shezzle rods not the 8 inch. and then make sure your flux capacitor has enough power to get you back to 1985.Sincerely, Dr Emmet Brown.

Ask the people that make the lowering kit. That's why they have tech support.

no you'll be fine. It puts a little more stress on the stock shocks but they can handle it. For best handling it is best to use sports shocks but stock will do if you are just looking for the look. 1.4" isn't that big of a drop. You camber will become slightly more negative, this will give you better handling, and it will increase tire wear a little. Not a lot though. I have a 96 integra that has been lowered 2" in front and 1.75" in the rear. These have been on for 40 thousand miles and the shocks are still fine and i go through tires at a normal rate
