Exclamation Springs and Shocks who knows this?? 2000 civic 4door

whats up everyone, need experienced answers here. proove what you know..

i have a Honda civic 2000 - 4 door
i want to change my stock shocks and springs. I want to gain handling and drop the car but not too much, and yet have a nice ride without all the headboping. the mags i will put on are the lightwieght DAI RACER flat black mags (15lbs)!!!!

my choices for springs is = Neuspeed Sport springs

feel free to sujest other springs (no more then 1.75 drop)

and for my shocks i was thinking either,

Tokico Illumina,
Tokico HPs
Koni Reds

which is better for ride and performance and quality and price!!
Once again feel free to sujest anything else. i leaning towards teh konie reds and the tokico HPs.

-can i put the sport springs on my OEM shocks????

My last question is, does a light weight mag really make a difference??? and How???

THANK ALOT LOOKING FORWARD TO REPLIES!!!

yes, but your shock life will be reduced. given time you will end up with bouncy, blown shocks.

yes, lightweight wheels really do make a difference. i used to have 17x7 wheels on my car... 24lbs each. then i put 15x6.5's on my car... 12 lbs each. the difference was noticeable. just consider the wheels like a flywheel. the heavier it is the more energy it takes to get it spinning. same with stopping.
