Im new here on the website and need help with lowering my car please.

Sorry for the dumb questions guys, but I barely got my 93 Legend L last year and I finally have money to spend on it. I put 18" wheels on it and I want to lower it and I was thinking of changing the springs or cutting them, due to the fact that all of my shocks are shot. so i was wondering...


1. What brand of shocks i should get? kyb koni??
2. If I should cut the springs or just buy new ones? eibach?
3. What kind of upper ball joints to get since I need to change them out too.
4. Also if i need to change or do any other adjustments to the suspension?

Welcome to the forum, never cut oem springs. It will make your car bounce around like saggy titts! If your going to lower then kyb's on monroe are out o the question because they are for oem ride height and would just blow.

The shocks most members use are Koni's and eiabach or ground control springs. They can be found on Tire Rack - Your performance experts for tires and wheels or ebay.

to lower it right get a camber kit to replace the upper bal joints so you can do it right. but u deff want to replace all the ball joints as the age of the car alot of people over look these.

Cool, would Eibach ball joints be a good brand? Or is there another brand I can buy instead?

Lowering a Legend is one of the dumbest things I've ever heard of.
