Talking Eibach Pro Lowering Kit

So this is my latest mod. A nice subtle 30mm drop at front / 29mm at rear. I haven't done any significant driving since the spring change, but the short around town driving that I have done is already noticeable! The stock springs were 'wafty' before, and in my opinion just a bit too high anyway. These new springs feel tighter, obviously a bit lower, but not silly. A firmer ride yet still just as comfortable as before. I would highly recommend anyone with a 9G Civic to do this! Especially if you own the Civic Sport model - as this adds a nice touch to the model, almost like how Honda should have made it at stock...


If anyone is interested, here is a link to pics of the car BEFORE the spring change;

And here is a link of to pics of the car AFTER the spring change;

So, yeah - go on - do it to your's too! This is still a family car for me, despite the apperance from the outside. I'm 100% happy with the outcome already, and I haven't even driven too far yet! Can't wait for an excuse to go drive it some more!

Just wait for a nice motorway cruise; The feeling of stability at speed is much improved

I must say, when I park next to other 9th Gens without lowering springs, I'm always amazed at how much arch is on show. - Looks ridiculous in comparison!

Whilst I'm here, Which splitter is that? (I've probably asked in the past )

Yes I've been driving it more now - did a longer run over the weekend and it just feels so right! The stock 9th gen springs are far too soft for the 'sport' model, and sit rather high even if it's a regular 9th gen in my opinion.



The splitters and side skirts are all from Maxton Design btw. They're actually designed for the standard 9g models too, so it's a perfect fit! The only issue with fitting them is having to drill holes in the splitters yourself, and then screwing directly into the car too. It wasn't an easy install for me, but I'm very new to modding cars, so perhaps it's easier for people who do this sort of thing more often...


I'm torn between doing either a engine re-map / Bluespark tuning box for my next mod - but would also like to get some new alloys at +1 size. Having seen other people's cars in this forum, 18" wheels seem to suit the 9g very well. I'm thinking of making the car more 'punchy' first though before changing at the alloys.

car looks great with the eibachs

i've done 20k miles on mine now, really love it at this height and much improved ride/ handling over stock roly poly setup.

yes the car suits 18" wheels IMO

Looks great.
The eibachs make a great difference.
I've had mine on for a few months and have a wee drop link knock but these things happen.
18s with a lower offset will help it sit perfect.
