I that case I'd just get

I that case I'd just get springs and not worry about replacing shocks also. I dunno if anyone makes them yet for your car, and they're prolly *** expensive.

Springs

so far I've seen Eibach, comptech, tein, and HKS that makes spring for the new civic. Some of them are only SI though. I wonder if they are interchangeable

Eh, I don't see why honda

Eh, I don't see why honda would give the si a totally different suspension. I can put 01 Integra Type R springs on my 91 CRX,

good stuff

good stuff. I suppose I could go and test drive an SI and stick my head under the car to figure out what's going on under there and compare it to my car.

Hell, just call the

Hell, just call the dealership, they'll tell you. Or check the part numbers online. How much are the springs? All those companies you mentioned are good stuff, so yeah. I'd go for about 1.5" Easy install, to boot.

Prices

Eibach pro-kit $185.00 1" drop
Eibach sportline $209. 1.4" drop? (doesn't say)
Tein H-tech $189.00 1" drop
Tein S-tech $189.00 ($169.00 SI) 1.5" drop
H&R (some german company I've never heard of) $219.00 drop not listed

I thought I saw HKS, but was mistaken

My only concern would be if SI springs are shorter than the EX, but the ride heights are listed as the same on the specs for both cars.

I doubt they are shorter,

I doubt they are shorter, but even so, if they are the same rate, once loaded it shouldn't make a difference, I don't think.

The sportlines might be my choice, I have skunk2,

thanks for the feedback

Cool, thanks for the feedback. I'll have to do some more shopping/investigating to figure out what I'll end up with. I also wonder if I can take the belly pan and rear tray from the hybrid.

The hybrid is only a 4 door,

The hybrid is only a 4 door, right? Which to me says no, you can do it yourself for cheap in any case.
