Suspension Set-Up

I read all the time in the forums of people blowing their stock struts when using an aftermarket spring with an agressive drop. Heres my proposed set up:

Koni Yellows
Neuspeed Sport Springs
Dc Sports or Neuspeed front upper strut bar
Chamber kits

do i need chamber kits witht the konis? i heard somebody say that u didnt. i know the suspension questions are getting old.

should be camber kits instead of "chamber kits" [IMG]i/expressions/laugh2.gif[/IMG]
for neuspeed sport springs, you will probably need camber kits cuz of the 1.75front/1.5rear drop.... unless u want to change new tires like once a year which will cost u way more than a one time camber adjustment.

koni yellows. i recommend the nuespeed sport springs. not a significant drop, but hey! you have koni yellows... both ride and height adjustable. wanna adjust the height? jack up your car so the spring is loose... lower the collar that holds the spring to the next drop... and BAMN! your car sits another inch lower! im not sure about the 7th gens though. my friend has koni yellows w/ eibach pro kit on his 96 civic hb.. a very good setup in my opinion... eibach prokit is a 1inch drop.. after adjusting the height... his car sits around.. um.. 2inch drop? basicly 1 finger gap from the fender well. camber kit? yes you need it! camber has nothing to do with spring and struts set up... its the angle of your wheel... so the camber kit is a must.

i thought konis were only adjustable in firmness, not ride height? Anyone want to confirm?

sticker tires/sway bars makes a huge diff if u want 1.0gs on the skid
also polyurethane bushings helps and stiffer spring ratios
heh i dont care about ride quality just how many g's i can push
konis are ok..but i would get jic or tein (which the type superstreet coilover will be out soon)
im waiting for the type RA for the rsx or si ,does it matter? the more the adjustability the better
the coupe already comes with a stiff 25.4mm front sway bar why not get the comptech rsx rear sway 22mm
if ur serious about hugging the road it all about suspension tuning[IMG]i/expressions/laugh2.gif[/IMG][IMG]i/expressions/laugh2.gif[/IMG][IMG]i/expressions/laugh2.gif[/IMG][IMG]i/expressions/laugh2.gif[/IMG][IMG]i/expressions/laugh2.gif[/IMG]

iamboo is on a distinguished road
you will need a camber kit.... the koni's are recommended by i suggest you wait for a more inexpensive set of shocks....strut bars work the same... so blah...
