We have needed one of these for a long time! This will be my new favorite thread. Hopefully there will be some good questions with some good answers!
Stock height. But seriously probably no more than an inch and a half.ok what is a good safe height to lower my car? i dont want to have to worry bout speed bumps
yes the springs are interchangeable between 01-05 lx, ex, dx, vp. strut housing diameter only matters when installing koni inserts. if your putting 03-05 onto an 01, the holes on the strut assembly (from 03-05) are (99% of the time) already larger than the knuckle's hole on your 01. there for, the struts you want to install use a larger crash bolt than can fit into your knuckleAlright, just to clear up confusion and everyone giving me different answers..
I have an 2001 Civic LX, will springs from a 03-05 fit them? The ones I have are 55mm and I know my stock ones are 50mm. I've heard it doesn't matter unless I have konis, since I have the whole assembly, and I can just drill the crash bolt bigger?
I believe you're thinking of Tein's EDFC, Electronic Dampening Force Controller. That changes the dampers, not the ride height. I can't imagine an effective way to adjust spring ride height while loaded.i heard about tein making some racing shocks that can be ajusted up to 3 inchs up or down. and still can be ajusted from inside the car with a ride hight ajuster.
if you have an 01 and you buy 03-05 struts it not possible to get them to fit because you have 14mm knuckles and the struts are 16mm. You cannot drill out your knucklesAh.. So they will work then? So what exactly do I do about the crash bolt? Or simply put, what can I do to make them work? Your last statement kind of threw me off a bit, sorry.
