My Budget Build Honda CIvic continues with my FIRST major modification! So in today’s video, we install the TruHart Street Plus Coilovers and dial in the ride height. Lowering a Honda Civic is nothing new, but never gets old! Let’s GO!
In my 5 Things to make your Underpowered Honda more fun to drive video, lowering the car was on top of the list! There’s just something about a lowered Honda that makes them so much better. So I decided to go with the TruHarts AGAIN because I genuinely think they are the best bang for the buck. Jason joins me again to help with the process and show you how to install coilovers from start to finish. I wanted to make this video more educational, but it ended up being entertaining as well. At Least I think so haha.
We found that adjusting the coilover off the car is much much easier. Measure twice, install once. Give yourself a good starting point using your old suspension as a starting point, then adjust down as needed. Once on the car, weight will change and springs will settle. At that point you can make your small adjustments. Overall, I want to say we lowered the car 2.75 inches in the front and roughly 2.5 in the rear. Giving it a slight rake. Some slight fender liner rub, but nothing I’m concerned about. Next up is going to be the wheels to bring the look together.
So you might be thinking, what’s the difference between cheap vs expensive coilovers? And where do the truharts sit in the pack? There is such a thing as too cheap, I try to stay away from suspension parts that seem too good to be true. Cheap coils may bind, leak, creak, or provide bad ride quality. Expensive ones will obviously give you more adjustability and are made of higher quality materials. I think the TruHarts are the best mix of quality and affordability. The only thing they lack is dampening, but for me, that’s not needed. Adjusting the preload and height of the car is good enough for me!
Hopefully this coilover install video was helpful! Stay tuned for more Civic content! Thanks for watching.
