Suspension question

Does anyone know a good place in London to get an aftermarket suspension checked out for a 03 Civic SI?

A guy at work just bought a lowered (see above) and the suspension is so stiff he has to try to avoid manhole covers and cracks in the road. Its so bad that the LCD screen in the back squeaks with every little bump and it wasnt doing that when he first got it.

This car I suspect was a trailer queen because the previous owner built as a show car.

Is there a tuner place that can adjust the suspension?

thanks.


Whaddya mean I dont pay my bills?? Whydya think I'm broke!!

I saw a import tuner place on Wharncliff (plaza near Hooters) but don't know if they do work there. I had my suspention done at Midas on Florance street.

sounds like if its a sstiff as you say it has adjustable coilovers that are slammed all the way down. you can adjust those back up for a "softer" ride. or it has a 2" drop coil. not much you can do cept purchas new springs..

I have no clue but he did find an instruction pamphlet in the glove box on how to adjust the Koni shocks. But he doesnt have the little Knob key thingy to do it and he doesn't know how it works anyway so he is going to Autosport tomorrow and have them check it out.
