      you really only need springs to lower it, but ideally, you'd also want shocks, and a camber kit (depending how low you want to go).

              and search "camber" and learn about that too before you lower your teg

                i wouldn't buy a camber kit unless you really need to. after i lowered my car using ground control adjustables and koni yellows i took it to get aligned and they were able to set the camber enough to where i didn't even need a camber kit. btw, i'm lowered about 2 inches in the front and 1.8 in the rear....something like that. if you're just looking to lower for the looks of lowering then just get some simple lowering springs like eibach sports and maybe some tokico illumina's or something like that. but make sure you search as much as you can or you will be told to do so countless times.

                  Im looking for the looks but I want it to perform as good as it looks. If I lower it and it rides creapy what is the point. I want a nice smooth ride good cornering you guys know what I mean im sure.

                    i think it's safe to say most people drop the car on lowering springs first and then ride on the stock shocks until they blow.

                        try to stay away from springs that have a lower drop in the front than in the rear. Sure the weight distribution helps on the launch, but at 50mph+, It becomes ineffecient (aero drag/ downforce on rear (i.e. front wheel drive cars here). plus, the tail will seem loose when cornoring hard. I could go on forever. If you want great looks and performance w/ quality, it will cost ya. What I recomend is.

                        Skunk 2 -or- GC sleeve overs
                        Koni yellow -or- Tokico illumina -or- KYB AGX struts
                        ES bushings, OE T/A bushing
                        new bolts and what not (OE HONDA!)
                        perfect circle upper and lower balljoints
                        Progress camber kit
                        *Progress sway bar
                        *strut tower braces

                        All tuned (cornor balanced), and computer aligned to prefered settings. (remember, all setings come with cons, for example, I like toe out on the front so my car will be darty into the cornors. However, I go through a set of front tires every month. Besides, you may not like your car to be darty.)
