Finally dropped... pics inside

I have been saving up to do this forever and the results are worth it.

Before picture...



Hello Tokico, Neuspeed and SPC...




Bye! Bye! wheel gap...







Opinions and comments welcome. Only got to snap a few pics before it got dark yesterday, so I will try and get more pics later.

They are dropped on Neuspeed racing springs. 2.25" in Front and 2" in rear is what the website says.

I did see your car and was surprised to see another good looking 7th gen. in the area. Seen alot of rice around here. There's also a black 7th gen around carlisle that I see all the time. I have been looking to see if he is ever on this site. His car looks real nice besides his tailights.

I love the setup I have now. I just have AEM short ram intake and the HKS and its not real loud at low RPMs but you can definately hear it if you get on it at high RPMs.

Cost for everything... Bought springs and rear camber used off of a member on here for $85 I believe, then bought Tokicos new for $330 on ebay. Then front camber bolts off of Truehonda.com for $32 shipped. Then $250 to install everything. Then another $50 for an alignment.

The ride is great! I love it. Just getting used to avoiding speed bumps. The ride is much better than stock. A LOT less body roll when turning. That will be the thing that you notice most on your setup I'm sure.

Yeah my rear does sit a little lower than the front. Which I am okay with. Its not a big difference. I will try to get better pictures during the day this weekend and put them up so you can see it.

Umm... the guy I bought the springs and camber kit from was running on stock shocks for over a year and I think he said he never had any problems. I just preferred to get new shocks and get everything installed all at once. Rather than if my stock shocks blew then I would have to pay for the install twice. I guess it depends if you are doing the work yourself or not. I would have if I had the tools here.


Thanks for all the comments guys.

I really do like the setup I have now and just in time to take down to the beach.
