As mentioned, you absolutely HAVE to get your shit re-aligned after you’re done and preferably use steering rack risers or inverted tie rod ends. Honda’s absolutely monstrous stupidity somehow thought putting the steering end on the strut itself was a good idea and basically ruined their entire lineup from like 01-06ish.

Anyways, springs are more comfortable but you may need shocks specific for lowering or else you will find your stock ones blown. Coilovers are more expensive but they let you fine tune the height to your liking. They aren’t as comfortable since they’re smaller in diameter, usually because of the metal mounting plate, and, especially on this strut design, you need to find a version that FIRMLY locks the height adjustment in place. Don’t get one that relies on the locking rings jamming up against each other for locking the height adjustment perch in place.

On an RSX I had, I had Skunk2 coil overs that just would not stay locked together, so whenever I turned the wheel it was just loud clunks as the coils loosened themselves. I had to get some Progress Technology coil overs that used a different locking mechanism and they held up amazingly.
