    Default Discomfort in my civic after suspension drop... Is it normal??

    I have observed discomfort in my civic after droping down its suspension. Is it normal or abnormal???.. Let me mention one thing that the suspensions used are stock not sports(lowering kit). The mechanic did some cutting of spring in order to get required drop level.

    Cutting your springs for dropping is the worst most stupidest thing to do if you want to retain any ride quality.

    Change those springs to stock ones ... or go n buy lower springs from kabari market of your city (E.g. Shershah in Khi). You'll find those quite easily for 4-5k

    I am very happy today as my problem is solved in Rs 300 by lahori shock wala in chah sultan. Atlast I gave up by putting spacers in front and rubber packing in rear shock. No doubt my car is risen by one fingure(half inch) from front & rear but atleast i can enjoy civic even on bumpy roads.... Now from rear side tyre to fender gap is two fingures and front side gap is three fingures.

    How thick is this rubber packing that you put in the rear? Is it the same as regular spacers, just made out of rubber?

    a car is lowered for performance driving. i doubt this car is being used for anything similar. You should stay on stock if you only run errands on it.

    IMO any modifications done to any car will ruin it unless it be for performance driving.
