I have been reading that cheap Honda civic coilovers work for lowering a EA81. Has anyone heard of this or done it? :banghead:

yes, they will work, but spring rate will make for an old ride as the front springs will be substantially higher than the rear torsion bars. A work around for this is to purchase miata front shocks, and ea82 top hats for the rear, declock the torsion bars and let the springs do the work.
