    Arrow Lowering Civic 8th Gen!

    Aoa PW Bro's!

    I want to lower my Civic 8th Gen. I've have no experience of lowering a ride.

    Based on my little research, I've found out that there are two basic ways of doing this:

    1. Installing the lowering springs like Max Speed Lowering Springs etc.
    2. Installing an adjustable lowering kit.

    I would be extremely thankful if someone could help me with this, and share some first hand experience as to which is a better method of lowering my ride.

    I would also appreciate if someone could guide me through the proper way of lowering the ride and also suggest me the pros and cons of both the methods that I have mentioned above.

    And from where can I get this done in Islamabad/Rawalpindi, and the approximate cost figures?

    Thanks in advance brothers!

    is lowereing it really so necessary?

    then what heighten it back when our amazing road breakers break her up?

    why mess up the orignal spring?

    its no problem at all. That is what a car forum is here for.

    If you are fiddling with the suspension.
    Look into getting rear and front sway bars.

    That would be my last option if i donot find any lowering springs or coilovers for my cultus. It is dangerous though, nobody would like to get khwaar in the middle of the road with the car's springs broken
