    @typer
    the best thing and one of the more cheaper ways to lower ur car is coil overs as attekt said, no it wont affect the suspension of ur car a coil over is basically a large "SPRING" for ur suspension, u can lower ur car quite a bit with em theyre also known as "lowering springs" (correct me if im wromg), look into em will prolly cost u arnd 8 to 10k good ones.
    thge pros, a smoother rider, and a kick a** lookin ride the con, u livin in PAKISTAN!
    @austin
    nice man readin stuff from need for speed now! haha can u explain what a suspension package is?? u just cant go to a store and tell the man (can i get a suspension package), so well do some research (no hard feelings)

    If you don't need to worry about speed breakers i'd suggest you go for some "mild" drop springs and enjoy.

    I did my civic back in 1996 and had issues with the speed breakers in ISB

    I got a set of springs from the UK and fit them, they were by a company called PI. Costed me 7000 back in 96. Fitting was around 1000 rupees. I'm not too sure about what's available in pakistan right now but i'd be sceptical about the ratings of the springs since most will be chinese and have no info with them. Best bet is to buy them from abroad and get them fit here.

    Don't trust chinese mechanical parts

    lol..ateek..that lowrider in your pic is on air-ride..not coilovers.

    i wouldnt suggest going too low...you dont have the roads around to drive safely and comfortably. my civic is dropped 1.7" in the front and i bottom out sometimes in the front.
    I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it..and so restriction of free thought and free speech is the most dangerous of all subversions.

    @ TYPE R

    Dont cut off your springs man!! Cuz what'll happen is that the car wud BOUNCE on bumps......and the ride would be floppy!!

    The Springs and compressed at a certain ratio and if u cut em, theres no ratio and it'll just be a simple spring!! Go for coil over springs frm a well known brand!
