i have to say that my friend has ground control coilovers and they ride worse than my generic coilovers that cost less than a third of what he paid. and the ride on mine is bumpy and sh*tty, and his is worse. although, we both have ours lowered a lot more than 1.5 inches, and he has a new civic and i have an integra ls. if u just want to lower it and have a nice ride i would go with generic coilovers and some nice shocks, struts, and a camber kit.

Have either of you changed your stock shocks?

eibach sportlines lower 1.7 inches in the front and back, of course you'll need camber kits.....preferably one with -/+ 3 degrees correction

the boy has Suspension Techniques springs lowered 2" front, 1.75" rear, Specialty Products camber kits front and rear with AGX struts front and NAPA stock type struts rear. The ride is really fine, not to choppy, still good ground clearance.

ive got ground control coilovers and am soon to get tokico illumina adj. struts.. for the money i would say that is one of the best combos. the ground controls ride great even without new struts.. total cost for everything $750...... good luck

about $350 part and labor included wheel alighnment.

I get the wheel alighnment done last (Trust me you will save alot) after you get everything bolt on first (get everthing bolted on the same day).

I have skunk2 coilovers and tokico whites, ride a little hard, but I have em all the way down. If you give em a little space (i had em higher when i first got em) they ride like a dream.
