Coilovers or Lowering Springs?

Are you planning to lower your Spark? If so how are you going to lower it? Springs? Coils? and why?

Springs might be the cheaper option but they only allow for one setting while coilovers allow for a range of different ride heights.

rather have coilovers since you can adjust the ride height to what ever you want it to. plus I want to go tracking with it so being able to adjust dampening is another plus.

I can't seem to find any coilovers for the 2012+ Spark, coilovers from other Chevy's might work, Chevy Cruze Coilovers or even Sonic Coilovers. So far I found lowering springs from B&G...

Wouldn't mind lowering the car a little bit. How much do springs usually cost? And how much does it cost to install?

You can modify the drive size to what ever you want it to. Plus i want to go monitoring with it so being able to modify dampening is another plus.

yes I am lowering my spark with some megan racing coilovers. I've always drove slammed in my hondas.. why not drive slammed with my spark. the only part that sucks is the rain and when it floods. Doesn't rain much where I live but still. I'll post some pics when I get it done.

springs? I would get the full coilovers they are about $800-900 springs they should have some on ebay for $200 more less. It shouldn't be pricey to install. I've installed my coilovers on every honda I've had without a problem. Shouldn't be that different. Make sure you pay off your car first depending on your dealer it might void your warranty.

I personally would do a set of coilovers but it rains quite a bit here and I already have a car that's low to the ground.
