Default can i use eibach lowering springs with my oem struts?

I own a 1991 honda accord ex and im planning on buying eibach pro kit 1 lowering springs. Is it ok if i keep my oem struts i already have or do i have to buy performance struts and shocks (e.g. belstein, h&r, etc) i only want to lower it about 1" but 1.5" is my max.

if your oem struts are old(3 or 4 years) most like they will burn out after a few months riding on them. Then you have to replace them again. So, waste of time and money. Lowered springs makes the struts/shocks work a little harder(damper rate higher) so recommend stronger struts that can handle it.

You can.. But it'd be dumb to.. The ride will be EXTREMELY uncomfortable. You'll feel absolutely every little bump. My suggestion? Screw the lowering springs and just buy some decent coilovers.
