* <p>'''Shocks and Springs''' - There are two brands of replacement shocks that are popular with NSX owners - Koni and Bilstein.  One of the key differences is that the Bistein shocks come with an adjustable setting for the lower spring seat.  This offers owners the ability to keep the OEM springs but lower the ride height by approximately 3/4" by using the "lower spring perch" prior to installing.</p>
