Default How low can you go?

Just recently aquired a 1988 Acura Integra, It's in pretty good shape but a
few of the most serious issues that seem to arise are
1. The car has OBVIOSLY been lowered by a do-it-yourselfer, It is so low
the catalytic converter is about 3 inches off the ground, when you run
over anything larger than a peanut it slams fiercely kind of like when the
shocks are bottoming out or something, this is probably the most urgent
problem since you can in no way drive it like that,what do I need to do or
look for to find the "fix" is it shocks?,do I need to get springs?, what do
I look for?

2.when you get up to a higher RPM right before your about to shift, The
Charging light up in the top left corner of the dash,
and the Headlight motor warning light in the lower left blink briefly at
the same time every time, What could that mean?

Thank you for your help! D.C.

it's the springs that lower the chassis.
you need to go back to OEM springs,and if the shocks were changed,them too.

Maybe a bad engine ground?

Number two sounds like a loose alternator belt. Honda / Acura ones need
to be _tight_.

<snip spammer gibberish>

Jim Yanik did not write that junk.

And my goodness, just look at the length of that Path header. It seems to
descend into bogosity at the prodigy.net listings.

Some (surely American) spammer apparently using Prodigy and Korean servers
is hijacking threads and identities in many groups, not just this one.
