Finally found some time to install the springs. Normal driving feels almost exactly like factory but cornering feels so much better. Swift did an amazing job with these :bow:

These springs make the car at home on curves, and the ride is a little stiffer than stock but I believe will be fine on the streets.

how long for the springs to settle,? Mine suspension is making some very light noises when parking (turning at slow speed), which is weird because the car made no noise on the test drive right after install, or maybe i just didn't notice, like I said, very light noises. I havn't got an alignment yet, trying to find somewhere that will install camber arms.

I haven’t gotten mine aligned yet and it’s been about a week. Drives super straight. No vibrations or noises. Getting it done this upcoming week.
Question, as I’m new to the lowered game-
Can any tire alignment shop take care of this and do they just follow standard alignment specs for Honda or do I need to specify anything?

Thats a good question. The Honda service manual is only available online and you have to pay for access. I would think a shop other than a dealership would have to pay for the access at least the first time. Specs are in a thread on this site that you could take with you if you wanted to make sure they are using correct specs. I think you should try to meet the factory specs for street applications IMO.

Not much is adjustable with stock parts when lowering. Just the toe, so I'm thinking any shop could do it for you. The pic I posted earlier was from Honda for my alignment. Also got to the track this past weekend. Springs felt great. Only wish I had more camber all the way around. Got to see 3 other 10th gen civic's out there and you could tell they weren't as level on corners.

Anything special to do alignment?
Nothing special is needed. Camber isn't adjustable, just toe to a extent. I had a friend at Honda do mine and what I posted is the best he could do to get the wheels straight. This was just springs. Next step is buying stuff to adjust camber.

Camber has some adjustment upfront, you need to remove the pins near the strut tower. There is a thread somewhere around here on how to do it that also contains the alignment specs for a CTR/Si and also the regular civics. I was able to squeeze a little over a degree of negative camber up front which really helped turn in and grip around a turn. I will post a link shortly.
