I do not know of an adjustable system but H&R has the springs. Not imported by H&R USA. :wink: They are very nice.

Are you really going to raise and re-align it for winter? I neer understood that. Maybe the theory is to see how low you can go and then raise it just a tad. :-?

Default coilover reasoning...

I had a JDM integra type R a couple years ago and on it i had some beautiful coilovers. I enjoyed making it extremely low, especially for show. It was sometimes a pain to get them just right but when you do, nothing looks or handles any better. Coilovers= Amazing all around. I forged this statement on a 3 series bimmer i had and went with the H&R cupkit, big mistake, I was really unhappy with the appearance and handleing as well. Its gotta be LOW for me-

hate to reck your dreams but handling is all about dimentions, not the lower the better. a lot of people get that mixed up and just assume that the lower you get the car the better it will handle. you have to change alot of stuff to get the geometry correct.
