Default Accord 1999 Coil Over Springs

The 1999 Accord I just bought has been lowered, and I do not like the
way it rides. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I should do to
imporve the ride quality. Should I just go ahead and put the stock
springs on, if so where is a good place to get them; or should I order
some aftermarket performance/lowering springs and just adjust the ride
height up a little. Do they make a good aftermarket spring that rides
well? My car has NO bounce at all if you push down on the front end
it doesn't move at all!! Much thanks,

Jon

Man I sympathize with you. Try ebay. Lots of people try to sell their
stock springs when they lower.

Or you could get new replacements from an aftermarked mfgr like
www.springsandthings.com or from an online Honda parts place like
www.ahmotor.com

I didn't. I ended up seling the lowering springs after 6 mos and replacing
them with the stockers.

Ride was so rough it was actually tearing the car apart, or it at least it
seemed that way.

Does anyone know what the best rideing aftermarket springs would be.
I see them all over ebay and want to know which ones are junk, and
which ones are actuall worth something.

Thanks.
