Tokico's & Eibach's Installed PICS

The drive is way better than stock. Very tight but not too harsh. The research says 15% stiffer than stock and I would agree with that. This is a great set-up for the every day driver who wants to have a little fun in the turns now and again.

I did not do the install myself. My friend did at his shop but to answer your question it went very smooth. It took 3 hrs and the new components went in just as easy as the stock ones came out. No problems.

The ride is smoother than I expected. The Tokico's will handle up to a 2 inch drop without blowing out. It feels very close to stock but handles much better thanks to the pro-kit.

205 40 17's. Here is a before pic with stock struts and springs. The Tokico's and pro-kit really made a difference and the springs may settle another .25 inches in the next few months.

I have the exact same set up as you,the ride feels better than stock to me as well. I'm also on 215/45/17 tires which helps the ride a little bit in the comfort area lol. Here are some pics of how low it is, might give you an idea how it may look like, soonercivic.



sorry didnt mean to jack your thread or anythin...

I'd say the tokico hp blues and the kyb agx are pretty much in the same class when it comes to quality.

The ride feels great to me however I cannot compare it to 215 40 or 45's because I have never driven on that particular set up. I can say it feels surprisingly close to stock and the roads here rough.

on 03+ vics the holes have to be drilled to 16mm right instead of 14mm, looks good on your car bythe way

I guess it depends on how low your springs are and if they have settled any. Some members here have them with sportlines, teins, and neuspeeds and they seem happy. Check the parts/reviews section and you will see what I mean. There is someone there who has their Tokico's with skunk2 coilovers.
Tokico sells a suspension package that consists of Tokico HP's and Tokico springs that will give you a 1.4 inch drop so I figured a 1 inch drop would be safe for me.

Very good. Steering response is quicker than ever, body lean has been reduced, and the ability to really pull through the turns is fun.

anyone feel like trading springs, I have the Eibach Pro-Kit springs but want to go a little lower like the Sportlines. Anyone interested. Sorry about jacking the thread, ill move it to wtt/wtb thread if you want, just thought it would be a good place to put it because you were talking about the pro-kit

Thanks. You are right, the struts have to be modified for 03 and up Civics. I am not sure what this drilling would do to the warranty though?

I have Tokicos with H&R Sport Springs and stock size tires on 99 S.i. wheels, and I love the ride. A lot better than stock, but a bit stiffer than the ProKit.

Your car looks good on those. Hope you enjoy the setup!!

I have Sportlines and the HPs as well..., had it on my 04 for 8 months and no probs whatsoever...still lovin' it.
As for your question, I had 215-40-16 tires before and they felt way better than riding on stock shocks, no more bouncy feeling, and handled great, but then I upgraded to 55 tires and the ride is even smoother, but handling decreased a little because of the bigger tires.

It varies. A friend of mine put a prokit on his stock shocks and they blew the next day. Another guy i know had them on his for 3 years with not problems. Its hit or miss, cant count on anything.
