Default lowering an Acura Integra (3rd gen) with springs?

im considering getting a 3rd gen. integra and will eventually lower it a bit. (1.3" - 1.7") with springs. if anyone has (or knows anyone that has) done this, did you have any problems with anything under the car being too low? and did you have to replace any stock parts, or did the springs just drop right in? and it will have the stock body parts too. no body kit to get all scraped up and ugly every time i leave my driveway!Thank you in advance!

you're gonna need a camber kit.. no doubt about that.. i'd advise using a skunk 2 adjustable kit.. since you're lowering the car, you wont be able to get a wheel alignment.. without the proper alignment you'll have negative/positive camber and toe.. which means you'll be eating through tires unevenly like no tomorrow. i would strongly advise to get a complete one piece adjustable suspension system if the funds are available.. look into D2, ground control and k-sport systems.. tein suspension is very good also.. however, if you're on a tight budget, go with H&R race springs with kyb adjustable shocks you never ever wanna drop a car with springs on stock shocks. the H&Rs will give you a drop of about 2.5" or so.. which is perfect.. not too high and not too low... i personally had a low drop on my car, my entire undercarriage was completely destroyed, i was constantly dodging potholes and such.. it was horrible.. hope this helps.

You need a rear camber kit for sure!! I lowered my rsx 2 inches without one and had a blowout from the tire rubbing. I also did it on stock shocks and it completely destroyed them. I would strongly suggest getting coilovers rather than springs.
