Just fyi, when i see some rice-burner honda from the 90's driving around, all tricked out, all loud with no muffler and with a huge honda symbol sticker on the back window and stupid lights underneath and all that...i laugh. you look ridiculous. why dont you get a newer nicer car instead of making your 1994 honda look retarded.

Sorry, but thats the way. If you cut the springs (like some others do), you will make the car unstable because the spring rate will be lowered and won't be able to handle the cars weight (meaning you'll lose control and/or bottom out). Best advice? Ebay to buy and a weekend to install with a friend.

Buy the springs, they are only about $100 and come with directions, however your car will ride like crap until you upgrade your suspension. Just do me a favor and don't put a stupid wing on the back of your car until you can seriously go about 170mph. honda's top out at 105 unless you change the majority of the engine computer system. My tiburon tops out at 174mph becuase i made the changes, and i still refuse to get a wing.

Put clamps on the springs; smaller tires can help a little, but not worth it.

Look on ebay for a coil over kit by drop zone, they are very similar to skunk 2 and I have installed them on 2 civics a 94 civic hatch and a 99 si and they work great and the nice thing is that they are adjustable in height so you can lower or raise the car up to 4", but if you are wanting to lower it a lot then you may want to get new struts too because the stock ones will blow if you lower it too much, but stock ones should be fine for an inch or two.

you just need to buy 4 aftermarket springs which will cost you around $115 go with TIEN S-TECH. but if you dont want to pay that $115 then cut you factory springs and drop it few inches but you will not get comfortable ride by doing this. so go with aftermarket springs for better ride and handling. you may wanna replace the struts later on when you have money!
