its a really bad idea, its ogng to ride horribly, cause damage, wear your tires, and everything else on your car.

but if you are going to do it, do it right and GET LOW, give those tires some shade from the harsh cali sun

this drop was achieved using 6" ground controls, 86-89 accord front shocks, modded forks and crx rear shocks with custom tophats. It had suspension travel till the chassis hit the ground.

If you want to go that low without ruining you suspension and tires your going to have to spend some more $$. Ebay coils are fine but you'll need stiff shocks and a camber kit and an alignment.

it rode ok. id say ebay coils are not fine. on teh setup i had there is no camber kit on earth that would fix the front to a reasonable amount of - camber, and the rear well, you could fix the camber till the wheel hit the quarter i guess.

With a stock type setup, youll never get that low and have suspension travel left, i had to do some significant customization. I usually post these pics as an example what NOT to do.

you CAN get as low as that first pic though. Id suggest picking up a set od skunk2 pro-c's or custom rate ground controls and koni race shocks (not the standard yellows)

I was just saying for typical driving. If you're not racing or constantly driving hard or cornering hard. If you were going to give it hell, I would'nt touch ebay suspension.

I'm running somewhat low on my CRX, using Koni Yellows with GC's 600f/550r. The wheel/tires are 15"x6.5" w/ 205/50/15. +35 offset. It's my daily driver.

For the most part it's just fine. You do have to watch how you drive up driveways though. And the 2 speed bumps that I drive over every day, twice a day, in my apt. complex can be a nuisance. lol

The drawback. . .the tires have rubbed my driver side fender liner to the point that it ripped out. :( And also the tires have rubbed the inside of the wheel well and there are a couple noticeable "dents" around the wheel well. (Can be prevented with fender rolling, but I didn't want to have to lose the fender liners. Ironic huh). You can see it on the passenger side here:

I've had the blue/silver ebay sleeves. They're hell to ride on. There soft, bounce, it handles like crap, doesn't fit the shocks right, and the shocks will blow. Even if you raise the car, the springs are soft enough where a 1" manhole cover will bottom out the suspension.

Cut your springs..........:?
Prepare for crappy ride and horrible driving experience.

Having something that sits and rides that low doesn't serve any real purpose and puts tons of stress on your car and suspension components.

Your shocks WILL blow, and the coilover sleeve actually cut in on my front shocks. The ride is horrible, and small ruts will bottom out the suspension, which HURTS.

So, yes cheap ebay coilovers will mess up you and your suspension.

Get four friends and a torch. Have the four friends sit on the hood then heat the springs up till you get the height you want. repeat for the back. Its the only way for that racer look!!!

How much lower than stock is that because that car looks amazin :-)b g and id like to lower mine that much not to extreme but getting rid of that fender/wheel gap looks awesome! 8)

Yep got some $100 ebay coilovers on my 98 hatch right now, you have to try them to really know how horrible they are. Gonna be returning them back to stock right away. You hit the smallest bump and get thrown around all over the place, horrible to set the height as the one side seems to keeps slipping down.
also just noticed the plastic bushing at the top of the spring has cracked so bad its not even on top of the spring.
