It's easy if you have the right tools. You need a spring compressor which is about 12 quid from Halfords.



You remove the strut from the car, then you put the spring compressors on the spring, and then remove the top mount, the spring will then just come out, then you uncompress it, and then compress the new spring and put it on and then it's a reversal of the first bit.

The rear's are really easy. Hardest thing about the fronts are the bolts are usually tight.

Shorter springs will normally fit without the need for compressing wink

You just have to be very careful if you let the std ones go with a "ping" as they have some preload on them.

Civics also have a pretty complicated front setup - more so than other cars.

I just fitted heavier springs to the race car today, and it took nearly 45 mins a side :ong:

Just DIY!!!

Its a bit of a prick doing the fronts, but the backs are dead easy. The new shorter srpings shouldnt need compressing, and you can get the std top mounts off if you are careful without the need for compressors.
