Well, the cars already been lowered 3 inches and i've purchased some Oscam Trax 13"x5.5J mesh wheels, and apart from that i want to keep it as genuine as i can.

i'll put some pictures up of how it looks now :)

Looks good lowered. Is the front sitting a little higher?

It surprises me how this gen of civic seems the most overlooked. The one I use to have was a champ. Wish I would have kept it.

Thanks, i tried to get period 80's looking wheels to suit. The suspension is all new with new springs, the front is an inch higher to prevent it bottoming out - we used VW Mk1 bump stops to stop this bottoming out and just cut them down. as of yet with the new wheels i havent drove it so it'll still need to settle yet :)
