The ride quality is great, in my area the roads are average I do swerve to avoid larger potholes bUT I do that in every car. On my youtube channel I posted this ride along video I'll try to post a link. The install was fairly easy but I wouldn't recommend it if you've never done it. Pro civic has a detailed video on how to Install coilovers which is the same concept for the installation. If you do it yourself make sure yo have spring compressors or take them to a shop and have the front springs installed.So I have a sport as well and I'm thinking bout lowering it. I am new to this so I'm completely clueless. What are some things that I need to be aware of before doing this? Any issues after the lowering? also the area I live in is coal country so many pot holes.
