    Any tips on what configuration to use to lower a '78 civic?

    BC Racing is making fully adjustable springs, but it's still under development.

    The Civic instantly looks much better with that new front valance. Bytheway, nice to see dutch JNC's that have the original old style license plates.

    Don't tell me you are serious. Chopping springs is the last thing you want to do, with chopped springs you have a good chance that you mess up your whole car (when you chop away too much your springs can't absorb the energy of a bump and the whole car will get the shocks). Apart from that it is in my opinion very hard to chop the springs and get the left and right side the same height and strength, so you'll probably end up with a car that drives uneven. And last but not least: I don't know what the rules in Belgium are, but here in the Netherlands it is illegal to do anything to the springs like chopping them or clamping the springs together (yes, I've heard of people who did that instead of chopping) and then your car won't get through the yearly APK/MOT.
