I believe those are the 2017 civic sportline springs.
Don't know... I searched for "Eibach" and those were found w/a pic (on a 10th generation)… you may want to contact the member that posted it to confirm.

Replacing the stock springs with lower ones would only shorten the life of your shocks. You could be bottoming out the shocks or ride the bump stops which would make the ride worse, and also affect handling. I always replace the springs at the same time I install aftermarket shocks that can handle shorter and/or stiffer springs, ie: higher spring rates. Most factory shocks are not designed to handle lower springs and are made to be mated with the factory springs. Stiffer springs will also make the ride bouncy because the stock shocks won't be able to dampen the compression forces properly.

I personally would do a rear sway bar first. The way my Accord 2.0 feels I believe it has a farily small rear sway bar. I also don't like the body roll I have in my car. A rear sway bar would fix that right up. Are any aftermarket sway bars out yet?

Also from my experience Koni and Bilstein and most aftermarket vendors don't come out with shocks for a new model for at about 3 years so it's going to be a wait... Springs should be out soon if they are not out yet, because it takes a lot less R&D to produce springs, but I highly recommend doing springs & shocks at the same time if you care about handling improvements and not ruining the OEM shocks.

Eibach Pro-kit springs are design to work with the OEM shocks, so no big deal, when the shocks ware out at some point I will just replace with new oem shocks, if I still own the car.

H&R or Eibach springs? Looking for recommendations and pics
Thought I’d share mine in case others are researching....
2019 Touring 2.0
D2 Pro
2” drop lowering springs
CONCEPT ONE - RS-55 (20" x 8.5" +35)
235/35R20 Tires
There is a bit of a gap in the back. Going to try 3/4” spacers. However, I want to add a rear camber kit before I do that.

I would have loved to do coil overs, but with the touring Adaptive Suspension, not much of an option unless you don’t mind staring at a suspension warning light on your dash for the rest of the time you own it. The ride has a small amount of bounciness. If I put it in sport mode it kills a bit of the bounciness.

Eibach Sportlines. They have a 1.8" drop. Pretty nice ride.

You'll only bottom out on bad pot holes or dips. If you don't really have bad roads or you actually pay attention while you're driving, you'll be fine. I've put lowering springs and coilover sleeves on 150k-200k struts before and rode with no issue(except the ebay coils were bouncy as crap...)

Thanks for all the specific ingo. Man, I absolutely love those rims. Gotta put them on my 2.0T Touring. There's a car on instagram #thatwhitetenthgen, and I think the wheels are the same.

Again. Very nice!

Did you add any wheel spacers of any kind to get the wheels more flush with the fenders?

Do you think you need camber arms for the rear for the 1.8 drop? I want to lower my car but don’t want to invest in camber arms hahaa

You can lower without needing camber arms. Just keep in mine the rear camber will just drop on how low you're going.

Adding camber arms will give you the ability to straighten the camber and save some tire wear in the long run.

I myself lowered on BC coilovers last year and ran it as is for 5 months before I got camber arms.

Are you on extreme lows or the standard br for coils?

Your BC’s are a 1.8 drop right? And how was the wear on the tires until you got your camber arms? After how many miles? also did you get an alignment done? Sorry for so many questions just really wanna do it but want to get my research done before I do! I appreciate your response

It’s hard to measure exact drop on mine as I also changed tire size for my summer setup. Working from home so I barely put any mileage on the car. You will need an alignment when you do suspension and when you do the camber arm. So if you want to same some money get them done together. I went with the SPC camber arms for the civic type r.

No worries about the question. I’m always happy to help!
