right , as i said b4 i wanted 2 slam my Civic so this is some of the pics of how it went ;) I lowered only the back so far cause theres 2 many things that can go wrong on the front ( will do it on tuesday/wednesday ) :) . I u can c from the pics i had 2 cut one of the shox because screw stuck inside it n there was no way to remove it < rust > lol plus in the end i used the old springs on new shox cause the car wasnt low enough :D lol more pics soon , new wheels r closin in :D

Re: EJ9 updated ( pics pics pics ):D

+ guys , theres is no way u can lower EJ9 on these springs ! The ones attached to coilies r 2 long n 2 hard , the car is to light 2 compress them enough . when i first put the car on wheels right after i done the fitting , it was higher than b4 !!! n it was on the lowest ! lol so i decided my last chance is to check if the old springs will make a diff n they did :D am lucky previous owner put lowering springs on the car like , it was so much easier ;) a think that the final look is all worth the effort ! :D
