    Hi,

    I know those that own EP3 CTR's are into this, but has anyone else bought a set of aftermarket springs that enhance handling but not drop the car real low and NOT look boy racerish for this Civic variant?

    Just looking to see what's out there ...

    I stuck a set of Eibach lowering springs in my MPS which were rated to be a 30mm drop. Was just right for my liking as I only wanted a subtle drop
    I'm sure you can get something equivalent for the Honda? Here's a before and after:

    I would uprate the anti roll bars (ARB) first If Its handling you want. Then some Eibachs for looks and even less body roll.

    Eibach are the best springs to go for.
    Had them on my Civic coupe years back.
    If retaining the existing damper you can't get any better than eibach springs.
    They are the best for the most subtle drop. I think in some cases you can get a 25mm drop too

    Forgot to say the eibach on my car work with standard shocks, I'm assuming you can get the same for Honda?

    if i go down this road, this would be the best fitting option for me ... else i would be safer looking at coilovers all round.
