I have a new 09 Sedan LX CBP and I got new 17" rims and it looks like theirs too much space in between the tires and the body. I have no idea how to lower my car but i only want to lower it so it doesnt look too awkward.

any recommendations and how is the price range by the way. also i really do not know where to start. please assist me, thanks!

HFP suspension if you want to do coilovers, Eibach Pro kit if just springs. Will get rid of the gap.
ok so if i get the Eibach pro, will there be a problem if i get a new set of rims or tires in the future?

also how much do u think it will cost with the springs and the installation?

No you wont have problems with new rims. You can run so many different sizes and be okay.

200 for springs, 100 for install. I did mine myself.

really? thats a pretty good price. a couple of my buddies were talking about lowering cars for $600 and whatnot and they mentioned things like shocks and whatnot. does this not have anything to do with me?

if youre not buying shocks it can be cheap, but with shocks youre looking at around 400 on those, 250 on the springs and probably another 150-200 on install, my coilovers cost me 150 to have put in and theyre fuly assembled from Skunk 2, so that means itll probably be more for a spring/shock since assembly is required, but that all depends on the shop you talk to

and I wouldnt call HFP a coilover kit, just another spring/shock combo. . . no height adjust = not coilovers as far as im concerned
