    Yes, Bro, CNG is installed in that. But despite that my many friends who don't have CNG installed in this type of civic are always complaining about hitting the car with nasty road speed brakers, scattered all around in Lahore. So with CNG it becomes even more serious problem.

    Anyway thanks for replying me.

    Then i would suggest you to add `packing` which would increase the height and make it equivalent to stock height or maybe even a little more.
    Try this first and see if it solves your problem.

    Also try taking your car over the bump in a diagonal patter, it helps ALOT.

    With time you get used to it! the CNG installers put .75' spacers everytime they fit a kit in the car just to bring it back to stock height. do check if your car has it or not
    I used to want to change the world. Now I just want to leave the room with a little dignity.

    Agreed.
    @OP Since you have CNG installed then you can add the spacers in the back but increasing the ride,s height by alot would result in poor handling.
    Do as illdude suggested.
    Also try crossing these speed breakers diagonally.
    It helps alot.
    One of the most difficult things in the world is to know how to do something, and to watch without comment, somebody else do it incorrectly.

    please dont go for more then .75inch of spacers to bring ur car to genuine height, other wise its looks odd plus chances of the car leaving the road (skiding) causing accidents.
    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.
