New toys and...

A chance for me to just snap some shots. I installed my Koni Yellows into the civic. Install was fun... enjoy!

Thanks, UPS...




OEM Shocks off:




Drilled the hole on the bottom:


Cutting time:




Damn it!!!


Finished cutting:




Empty Cartridge + Koni Yellows =


And put it all together!




And don't forget this...


That is all. Of course I'm missing an assload of steps but this isn't a how-to write up. It's set on soft atw and.... I love the ride! Damn near stock! Complete set of yellows now yay.

Re: New toys and...

It does sag in the back... I had to raise it all the way up in the back, and it is still low.

Yeah, that's a D50, but with a Tamron 35-105 f/2.8

Re: New toys and...

why not just order stiff set of rear springs?

you can order custom springs from GC. I think they come with 350lb front and 250lb rears with stock gc's, at least thats how it is for the integras. I have 440lb front and 330lb rears on my ride. Works perfect with my koni's. I set it to about a 2 finger gap in the rear and 1finger in the front.
