lowering my '05 civic


New Member
was wondering with my 17" inch rims with 42 mm offset if it will rub my wheel wells if i go 1.5-1.8" lower. i don't want to have to spend the money to find out its too low. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

If you get adjustable coilovers, you can lower it to your liking =)
Adjustable is the way to go. The lower you go, more than likely the more it will bounce, but it depends on what you want to do with your car as to how much you spend and the quality of the kit that you buy.
