Looks good, why not just get adjustable coils?

I would, but they don't ride like Eibach Springs, I think Eibach is the closest thing to stock springs.

Cut springs on a TSX! Why? Do it right and either buy new springs or get some Koni adjustable shocks. Your ride will handle like poop with cut springs.

nice car, but like others have said... avoid cutting coils! no good comes from this (well, other than a lower ride height)!

save some coin and get adjustable coilovers! tein basics and buddy clubs are very affordable.

Besides being unsafe you will also lose the ride of the eibachs once they are cut.

+1. Koni shocks allow you to lower with their perches and have dampening adjustability to give you the ride quality you want.
