so i found a great deal for them 50 bucks. brand new. im going to look at them today hopefully.

what i need to know is what to look out for i dont want to get ripped off. are they going to say skunk2 on the springs themselves? what should i look for to make sure they aren't bad or used? ive never shopped for suspension and wasn't going to for awhile but this is a good deal that i cant pass up i dont know anything about springs.

50 bucks is a very good deal so im just a little cautious.

the drop was like 1. somthing cant remember what ill have to call again.

thanks for the help.

it should be red and should say skunk2 on them.. if its red n doesnt say skunk2 then im pretty sure its a brand like dropzone.
if its used its going to be hard to tell cause some times the logo comes off

ive looked at e bay and all that. should just have a "skunk2" in white right? and this is a pretty good deal too right lol? cuz ive only found them for like 175 around places.

also i have 16 inch wheels if it was say like 2in drop im going to be fine right? i also dont play on using stock struts so dont worry lol.

and thanks for the help.

i had 17's on my 4th gen with 215/40/17's on and never had a problem with my neuspeed sport springs..

also, buy the springs for now, save and get some struts.. even something like kyb agx or another near oem strut will be much better than what you have now and they're not too expensive

Are these what you are looking at?^ It also says AVERAGE drop rate is 1.5"-1.75". If you scroll down and click on 93-01 prelude, it says 2.0"-2.25". Price $204.40.

^These are what I reccomend if you think the others might be too low. Just not from Skunk2's website. You can find them for $275.00 shipped.

But for $50, you cant go wrong, if they are what the guy says they are. Just make sure it's for a set of 4. lol
