You could always do the old trick they use with the your 4th gen civic..

Juss use 88-89 Accord struts (I think that is the year) , which have a lower perch, so you can another 0.5 inches.

and use Neuspeed Race springs and your car should be sittin that low

or have that exact stance....

best part is it will ride as smooth as stock

yeah i hope you weren't planning on just slapping in the springs on stock struts?? You'd need a dampening adustable shock for sure. Something like a koni yellow or tokico illumina. Even then they would probably blow pretty fast. If you're looking slam the car, you should really look into some coilovers

Your axles will be at too extreme of an angle things you will need to replace often with a set-up like that are. Axles, tires (since no one makes a comber kit with over 3* adjustments that i know) cv joints and front end bushings. Plus your car will be super twitchy. Trust me I experimented with an over 3 inch drop for awhile and had nothing but problem after problem. Worst thing that happened cracked my tranny case!

I drive with my car slammed all the time and its atlest a 5 or 6 inch drop. rockers only sit an inch off the ground. and I'v never had and problems with axles or cv joints. sure your tires will get camber wear. but when you drop that much. theres no point of putting on expenice tires.

only prob is that without good tires, you won't be hooking any type of power to the ground.

i drove around all summer dumped 4 inches on coilovers, no problems, and this is on kyb gr2 struts, ball joints are fine, tie rods are fine,

as with the camber kit, the less camber you have, the better. so it will help regardless

i never had a chance to get mine on the alignment rack at work so i dunno how much camber i had, but come summer i will
