ok, so i am completely illiterate to suspensions, but i know that by putting 18" wheels on a stock suspension that i should lower the car... Honda dealer wants $1500 to buy and install HFP suspension, is there anything cheaper that i could buy and have my buddy put on? He put his Tien suspension on and it looks hot, so any suggestions on where to get good quality but not pay out the ass?

Thanks! :hitit:

Better if you get a good aftermarket suspesion that you can actually tell a drop. Tein or Eibach recommended.
lol... umm two different results. You can lower your car with aftermarket springs then you can tell it looks lowered and rides like shiat. OR you can do coilovers like the HFP kit and you can tell when you corner hard that you have an aftermarket suspension when it bites the corner.

Your choice ;)

i am personally looking for better handling, but also would like that inch drop because of the HFP 18's that we are putting on it... i don't want a car that is sitting on the ground, this car is what we use for our every day driving...
