The angle of the first one in black looks like a platypus.

Peorsonaly I wouldn't want to change the ride height as it would affect the ride comfort and It's a comfortable height to get in and out of the car. If I wanted it lower, I would have bought the sedan or coupe version. I would like to see it sit on a set of 20" rims though!!! 245/45 20 would have an overall diameter almost perfectly identical to the stock 18s.
That being said, I can definately appreciate the work and style that would go into slaming a CT like the black one above.

My thinking too, CC......20's with lower profile rubber if anything at all.

A modest lowering would be appreciated. It looks like the SEMA Crosstour has the desired lowering amount for me.

It wouldn't work out in the 2 foot snowbanks we get up here!
Good for cleaning off the driveway though! :)

LOL, with snow depths like that you might want to jack the CT up some to navigate your winter.
A plow on the front would do the drive.:D

WINTER! UGGG.

One of the selling points of the CT for me was the 8.1" ground clearance (better in snow, easier getting in and out) and this concept defeats the purpose, so it does not appeal to me at all.

I'll be honest and say that I did not even think about ground clearance or driving in the snow. I just don't like going anywhere when its that nasty outside unless it's absolutely necessary. The streets are cleared asap around here so its never been of real concern to me. The only things I hate about snow are shoveling the sidewalk and the tons of salt that splash onto my car when it starts to melt. It's impossible to keep a car clean for weeks.

What drew me into the CT was the different styling of it and how I could hook it up lol. But I'm 23, that's all we think about when it comes to cars: how can we make it look cooler. I'll crawl into the car if it looks better slammed on the ground lmao!! All jokes aside the lower suspension with those lighter HFP rims and low profile tires will make the car handle a lot better in addition to making it look better. Of course all of that will be useless in snow but I can live with that.

What he Said:D
The only real thing other than driving in the snow is messing with the ride and handling. I might be wrong but isn’t going to put undue pressure on the frontend and since the whole drive train is there it might cause ware on steering components. I would also check with the dealer and see what it does to the warranties

This mod was done by Honda though. I'm sure they wouldn't mod it with parts that are not going to work well with the CT. It will be covered by the Honda warranty when they make the suspension kit available.

Another 5-10 years you'll still feel the same way but with a twist.

"How can I make this look cooler AND not have my wife bust my balls about it???"

LMAO I can just picture myself trying to convince her that slamming it to the floor and adding a body kit somehow increases mpgs and stability... Then hoping she falls for it lol...

I just looked at the SEMA CT and I thought I'd like the light drop but I didn't. I find the wheels look small.

Yea a car this size needs 20s or 22s to fill in the wheel arches when you drop but I still think that the car looks awesome lol.

You hit the nail on the head dude, you're 23, when you're 59 it is a loooong way down into that lowered seat! Enjoy your time, I used to have a blast with mods in the late 60's, (we were more into jacking 'em up then), and we were far less sophisticated, real trial and error, and usually error, lol. But great memories.
