It looks simple, but it's not. Take it to a motorsport shop or a garage. Maybe hired a neighbor who has done it before. It's simple for them and should cost you a good $100-$150 for labor.

any suspention shop, or normal garage can do it for you.if youre handy and have the tools, you just need to pull off the old shocks/springs, and put the new springs back on them.

just do a search. the hardest part is you need a spring compressor (very expensive). most auto garages will install them for around $200 to $300. some cars even have to have the rear seats removed in order to get to the shock towers.

depends on the year of your civic. Needed: spring compressor -> rent one for like $50 at auto shop(kragen, pepboys). I did mine with friends who have done it before, but ran into some probs. take it to a shop if your not comfortable with your car knowledge/experience.DONT' HEAT SPRINGS AND CUT THEM. WORSE THING YOU COULD DO.

be nice if you gave us a year on the car!Honda has two utterly different suspension systems on these cars and you need the year to determine which one in on the car!If you have macpherson struts- go to a shop, they are friggin dangerous for the unskilled with improper toolsIf you have the double wishbone go to a shop as changing springs involved disassembling ball joints and brakes and can be nearly impossible for the unskilled and lacking of toolsGo to a shop, Eibach-OK Ckoice, what ya got for shocks/struts or in England"Dampers"????It just isn't safe to do this at home OKASE Cert Auto tech, 30 years
