Hello, I kerbed my wheel today! I ended up having to get a new tyre. *cries* was hoping for this to never happen but I guess it did. Was rushing for no reason and tried getting through tight gap of cars so my idiotic fault and I usually drive slower than people.

I had the car jacked up waiting for my brother to come back and just wanted to know if anything needs changing out of these? Or are they fine? I hear creaking when turning so I'm not sure if it's to do with anything here. Drop link? If anything then how much would it roughly cost? Would rather get all of them done at same time or front first then back etc.

I am wanting to replace all shocks if possible? If there's a price on that too? or links?

Thanks, Janny.

all looks fine to me but I'd get your wheel alignment (tracking) checked, no point putting a new tyre on then a few months later one of the edges is worn away...

if you're thinking of changing all the suspension these are one of the cheapest on the net .

Thanks, some reason it doesn't come up onto the actual image of them. I was thinking of lowering the car 15mm and getting all the shock redone just so it'd be better ride? Plus it looks like it's in the sky. Maybe I should just get springs done for now so it's lower?

national tyres have a 50 percent discount on their website for a front wheel alignment. Had it done a few times (different cars) from there and have had no problems
Thanks, will definitely look into it. My brother knows people at his local garage so may be able to sort a deal but will see how much it is on there.

Was thinking eibach 15mm? I think I was gonna get the stereo done first as I wanted to change to double din and then springs after.


But my car is Civic 1.8 Type S.

the spring kit for your car is a 25mm drop I have them on mine ,

eibach pro kit https://www.autodoc.co.uk/eibach/1929868


but the double din is a great idea, I put a pioneer satnav double din in mine and the sound is amazing it's one of the best mods I've done... also put a reverse camera to it...

Thanks. Will have to check it out. I was hoping there'd be 15mm? I feel like 25mm will be too low for me. Do you have any pics of your car from the side, front and back? So I can see if I want it like that.



And yeah I was thinking Pioneer. But was also thinking Pumpkin android stereo as prefer the android stuff but unsure on the sound quality. I'm sure both will be better than standard.

Thanks. I was just reading is the TYPE S lower than the standard car?


Was wondering why there wasn't any 15mm springs. So should I be getting 25mm then?
that is correct only the type r is lower by 10mm as standard but all other trim levels are the same so 25mm is correct for your vehicle...
