you could try removing the springs and appling grease on the seat of the strut where the springs sits and on the top hat that holds the spring in. this should help with some of the squeaks. the stiffness could be based on the spring rate, could just be a stiff style spring. try and see what brand they are? if they are a cheap/ebay brand then it could just be quality. i would think about investing in coilovers or just a different spring/strut combination. good luck

if it's squeaking, yer shocks are prob toast.

the more u lower, the quicker the shocks wear.

Haha ya Ima get coil's down the line...for now Ima get intake,exhaust,yellow fogs,Honda badges,abd tints and that's about all I can think of for now an then after I get those done I'll shoot for some wheels and coil's
considering your stock suspension is probably already fried or close to it, i would suggest coils as your first mod... :dontknow:
but hey, that's just what i would do
