9g Civic Lowered on H&R's

And this is the result:



Really love the drop. Looks perfect/sexy to me and the ride is still comfortable but offcourse a bit more stiff and controlled.

The center caps are off for dipping

The wheels seem to go too deep into the arches... or is it just the photo?

There's no rubbing mate. It's 3cm lowered all around so the back is more tucked in but still nothing rubs

I mean visually. If you can, take a photo from a lower perspective, please. I'm considering buying the springs later this year. How does it take potholes?

Takes potholes fine. It's not like im trying to drive into them but I did accidently come to speak of it and it springed up just nicely.
Overall I would say the springs are more aimed at retaining comfort then pure performance if that makes any sense.

Visually depends on what you like I guess? No springs will alter how far in they will sit. You will need spacers or new set of rims to get them further out.

Will get a few closeups in the daylight tomorrow

Hehe yes. All about $ bro

That design looks a bit rough/unfinished but something similiar indeed
Offcourse you would have to slap a turbo on the car to match that look lol

Mate it's stunning. White is the best choice for 9G. Black tinted windows, lowered suspension, a nice package. I wished mine was white, but is black. Really nice car, enjoy driving it. :thumbup:
