I have the order in and waiting for arrival, but hesitant on the install for just what I mentioned.

On a side note, they will be coupled with 245/45/17 tires on 9" rims...

Thoughts TheOneDoubleN????
These springs do not bounce like putting 2" drops on a civic with stock dampers. Compared to stock, running the RCE's w/ stock dampers creates less bounce than stock springs with stock dampers.

I say this with the utmost frankness and honesty, having had both mildly lowered cars, and slammed cars. These springs have no drawbacks compared to stock. You can take speed bumps, dips, and driveways the same speed or faster because there is so much less dive, and the static height drop is 0.75in. Put two people in the car, and the car rides HIGHER with RCE's compared to stock with two people in the car.

Capiche?

The tire size is fine. I ran a 245/40/18 on 18x9's +38, no problem at all, plenty of room.
