NEED HELP!!! 2006 Civic Coupe EX taking bumps HARD.

Hey guys,

Just have a quick question about my 2006 coupe EX. It's automatic, 17" alloys. It has been taking bumps very,very badly for a little while now. I got some cheap struts put on it maybe two years ago and it made it a little better but its right back to where it was.

My question is this:
Which are the best struts for this car that will give me the SMOOTHEST ride possible?

I need to make sure I don't buy something that isn't going to make a difference. I'm willing to spend what I have to in order to make this thing ride smooth.

Thanks in advance for your help!

If you think a good mechanic is expensive, try hiring a bad one

Do you have rubber band tires or more meaty ones?

Are you used to a car with a softer ride?

My previous car was a Park Avenue, it took about 3 years to get used to my 12 Civic.

My 2006 Acura CSX is exhibiting the same "crash bang" over bumps.

I think my car needs struts, shocks and springs to restore its ride.

I've been considering installing the HFP Civic Si suspension kit.
