achieveing stock height with coils?

car: honda accord 98 v6 seden
current setup: tokico blues with eibach pro-kit (1.5 drop all around)


i just want a set of coils that will slam in the summer and stock or close to it in the winter

with the 1.5 drop i have right now my wings west front lip is about 2" off the grnd at the lowest point so it doesnt work that well, was thinking about getting teins however the highest point of the setup is 1.7 and lowest of 3.5 so its not the best. anyone know of any other coils out there with a better raise?

TIA

Forgive me I don't know jack about imports, however this is what one of our guys does.

He has a modified Fiero GT that he races on Auto cross Courses and full road course racing. However it is also the car he drives on the street. The rear has coil overs that he adjusts up for the winter and in the front he bought "spring spacers" they install on the front springs and give the car a 2" lift. He takes off the race tires, slaps on a set of Snow tires and while its jacked up, he cranks up the suspension and away he goes.

I may follow his lead with my V8 Fiero as I prefer to drive it in the winter over my stock 88 V6 5spd Fiero.

most ppl set to a height they like and go from there as some suspensions make it hard to constantly adjust the coilovers every season.

if u are that concerned with changing the ride height all the time, and am not a weekend autoX'er then another possibility is air ride. its more of a custom thing, but u slowly see cars coming with this as options.

if u are adament about changing ti coilovers and want the stock height. u can always see what other springs they have available for that coilover.

i know tein has optional springs where u can change the spring rates for that set of coilovers for ur car.
