Pictures of how CB7's look after being lowered...

I have noticed alot of talk about lowering and who does what and why and for how much....lol

I'll be doing it eventually and it would be great to see what different springs and setups look like and would benefit us all I think to decide how low to go.

Just so we can see what it looks like and get an idea...the more pics the better !

If you want, posts pics of your CB7 and fill in:

Make of front struts:
Make of front springs:

Make of rear shocks:
Make of rear springs:


Rim size:
Tire Profile:
Amount of drop suggested by Manu.:
Actual drop:
Est. Cost:

Your feedback after it's done:



Just use questions above as a template...lol

Hey man welcome to the forum. I think you might be able to find out a lot of the information that you are seeking by browsing through the members rides threads.

http://www.cb7tuner.com/vbb/forumdisplay.php?f=42

Most people list down what suspension they are running as well as which wheels and tires. Good luck with your car bro.

Hi there...

Ya I've been a member for awhile. I was the only Canadian to goto the Ocean Shores meet. (.. and found out my head gasket was blown...lol....she lasted 900 km though, all the way home...lol )

I wanted to have a thread that was short and simple and nothing but specs and 1 or 2 images rather then clicking forever on links on members rides.

Here's my ride:

Make of struts: OEM
Make of springs: ebay adjustable coilovers

Rim size: 16"
Tire Profile: 40
Amount of drop suggested by Manu.: adjustable 1-4" drop
Actual drop: approx 2.5-3"
Est. Cost: $100 (shipping in)

Your feedback after it's done: I loved the new low stance, and the fact that when winter comes around with a few turns of a wrench I can have it raised up to clear the snow. It rides very stiff, but I like it, and it corners like a dream. Everyone will tell you don't go with ebay springs, but I'm extremely happy with them. I could go lower with it too, maybe for shows, but for everyday driving it's already rubbing and scraping.

Sorry for the small pic.

Make of struts: OEM front, Tokico Blue Rear
Make of springs: Arospeed coilovers for a civic (450 F / 350 R)

Rim size: 15"
Tire Profile: 195/60R15
Amount of drop suggested by Manu.: adjustable 1-4" drop
Actual drop: As much as I could, staying off the bumpstops. Im thinking like 3.5 / 4"
Est. Cost: Probably a hun... but I got mine used for $40

Thoughts : Looks baller, rides pretty damn good. The spring rates are PERFECT. Im going to raise the front struts though so I can grab another 1" in the front and still have suspention travel. Also switching to 195/50R15's

I don't have pics but you can browse my MRT...ill add pics later.

Front and Rear struts/shocks: OEM
Front and Rear springs: Neuspeed sports

Drop is about inch and a half.

Wheels and tires: 15'' 96 ITR with Hankook Ventus tires.

It rides great and looks good imo but it could ride better if it was paired with aftermarket shocks.

There's already a thread similar to this, just without the pictures. People post what suspension setups they have and rate them.

Wow! lowered cars look great and may be nice to drive fast and for taking curves; in my state snows a lot and there are millions of path holes that will damage my car in no time; wish was living in FL or CA.
