Depends how low you wanna go



Having a fast honda is like coming out of the closet. you surprise everyone at first, but in the end your still gay.

Never heard of K&G. I have B&G springs on SS/TC shocks and struts. Love the setup even though it's super stiff for the crappy roads we have here.

Pretty sure the B&G's are the lowest you can go in terms of springs unless you go coilover. I like the drop, but on coupes, the B&G's are a tad higher in the front and it bothered me enough to slightly modify the front springs to go lower in front. Now sits pretty even and I like :D

good cheap springs are ksports. go with the fe5 ss/tc set up all round. i believe its about 300-400$ for the struts/shocks then you can get ksports for right around 130$ and they ride very nice.

you can get fe5 for cheaper than that.... or at least i did. the struts as a pair are about 170 and then the shocks are about 90 for the pair. ksports i've heard aren't bad, i have dropzones which are virtually the same spring i believe for the same price

Get fe5 shochs and struts from Crate Engine Depot, they have a good package deal. Then buy some decent springs.
