    Default Increasing Ride Height (Civic 99)

    I have a 99 Civic Oriel A/T (family car) that kisses almost every speedbraker in town... Just need to seat one person in the back and speedbrakers become my worst enemy.

    Looking for recommendations on increasing ride height without compromising road grip too much.

    Equipped with 14" wheels with 185/65 tyres and New shock absorbers.

    That sounds like just what I need. Where? Who? And how much?:p

    @Xulfiqar

    sample pictures would be useful too...

    btw... would a smaller/alternate resonator increase exhaust noise? i've read that the bigger the resonator, the quiter the exhaust...

    did the new resonator affect (increase) exhaust noise on your car? waisay your original resonator seems half the size of mine...

    the noise has increased a bit but not that much

    What kind of springs do you have at the front? I don't think they are genuine ones, or have you installed spacers etc?
    New or old, dampers do not effect ride height at all. Your coil springs and rubber bushes do.
    I'd suggest you to get rid of the spacers, if there are any, and install genuine springs at the front and slightly stiffer ones at the back. Try to find something like Tokico or other reliable brand, do study and compare their spring rate online- or get one from an Integra, that's not possible, is it?
    I'd go even for good quality, local made ones for the back end- chose ones with the same wire thickness but an extra couple of coils- do not go for macho wire springs of any sort.
    For the resonator, try to change its rubber mounts, if the resonator itself is OEM. Saggy, old mounts do cause problems like the one you're facing.
    Good luck
    P.S. Can someone here tell me how'd changing to bigger rim size help?

    definitely an invisible post.

    tokico installed in the front and back.

    spacers are installed at the rear.

    the rear bushings are shot and need changing.

    i was lookin towards longer springs but my mech asked me not to (road grip compromise).

    i like how quite my car is right now (on lower RPMs) and would love to retain the current sound. will look towards changing mounts first.

    the pipe (after the resonator) seems to be sagging too. the following could be a solution (if that is possible in PK6). i am referring to the 2 braces (bars) installed to keep the exhaust from sagging.

    Problem solved after adding thicker Springs. Change to a cylindrical muffler (the middle one) as well. Am now looking for a thinner rear muffler to completely eradicate all possibilities of contact with speed breakers. Any suggestions?
