suspension help???

i have a 92 civic hb and it is too low. I have adj coils on it and i put them up as high as they go but my car is still too low for getting into parking lots. I was wondering what would be the best thing to get. Air ride or Tein? If anyone could let me know it would be great.

what do you mean as high as they go: at the top of the tread, or you are somewhere lower, but the perch won't go higer because of the spring tension ?

I know summit sells air bag kits for hondas, but there probably over priced, just use that as a starting point...

btw airbags are total shit and are guaranteed to fuck your ride up

um no actually a chevelle isn't a truck. and apparently you didn't read my post. it runs 13's on street tires. that means it was spinning half way down the track.

Hey. We have a very pleasant spring, you don't have to dress warmly, the weather is very good. So it was this year, but what kind of weather will be the next year no one can predict. It's like ordering a free essay. You will not know what the result of the written essay will be until you receive it on your email account. So the weather, no one can know 100% what the weather will be like in 3 weeks.
