    Smile help wanted Civic 2002 lowered height

    Hello everyone.

    I bought Civic 2002 recently. The height is very lower, if more than three person sit in car then it starts touching jumps and bumps. I want to increase its height, the option i heard is to add "Spacers". Please adivce me if it is good to add spacers and where in karachi is the good place to get it done. Thanks

    Thanks for help guys. Get the job done yesterday. Installed 40mm Spacer about 1.5 inch. Overall height looks good now. Not much impact on ride. Just feel little bit stiff, but i think over the period it will be ok.

    Road grip is same as previous, but will be improved since it needs tyre change. didnt feel any change in breaking.
