    To be honest, I don't think there are going to be anything that is lower.
    Because to go any lower, you might as well have no suspension at all.

    On the front, if you need to be lower, you can get a roll centre adjuster (extended ball joint), and that will drop the front another inch.
    The rear pretty much have the room and it is going to be as low as it will go.

    You will be cutting your turret up right?
    Because going at that ride height, it is pretty much guarantee that you will need to cut the turret.

    You are going to need more than rolling arches, I mean cutting the turret.
    Because at the lowest ride height, I can say that upper control arms is going to be banging on that turret top if you are going to drive the car.

    If you are going to go low as you say you want to go, that is pretty much a must do.

    Just put your budget into ebay and see what comes up into range, read all the info and if you need further help, contact the seller.
    Pretty simple really

    You see that blue car posted above, the radiator support already touch the ground.
    If you throw on an extended ball joint, then it will go another inch lower.

    If that is still not low enough, then basically forget the coilovers.
    Just remove the springs of your suspension and ride on the bump stop.
    Because realistically, it is getting to the point that springs almost become useless at those ride height.

    Like other said, if you want it very low park, but usable when being driven.
    Then the only choice is air suspension, and there aren't such thing as a cheap air suspension.

    Drop knuckles?? I think you can get them for Hondas. I have them and they lower the car by 2" without adjusting the rest of the geometry of the car, that's the proper way to lower a car. Then if you want you can further lower your car with coilovers

    Ah okay cool, drop forks are basically your original forks but much shorter. They're popular in the US and you can buy them as manufactured one piece items there. Over here in the UK I'm not sure if there are any being sold, give it a google search. My friend cut a bit out of his forks and then rewelded them back up, and his EG sat on the floor it was ridiculous. I don't know how well this affects the handling though, and stress on other parts. Like the driveshaft and ball joints were at such an angle lol remember camber arms too
