  2. Do I need new shocks/struts with new lowering springs?

    New Member Introductions
    I have a set of 2" Tokico lowering springs from my buddy. I have heard that you do need new shocks/struts, and I have also heard that you don't. I'm assuming I should probably get new shocks/struts before attempting to lower my 1995 Honda Civic EX Coupe since the springs are 2". If that is...

  5. Lowering Springs

    Suspension Corner
    was looking into these lowering springs for my ej1. they give a 2.5" drop in the front and a 2.25" drop in the rear. the spring rates are 199 lbs in the front and 148 lbs in the rear. My question is are these rates low enough to use with my stock struts? I would be making a set of extended top...
  6. stiffer springs for a stock height crx?

    Suspension Corner
    Ok, I've been having issues with the stock springs being a bit too squishy with a second person in the car. I could care less if it rides like a go cart as long as I'm not scraping my header against the ground every time I hit a little bump with a passenger. Any recommendations for a stock...
  7. static vs coil overs... which do you think is better and why?

    Suspension Corner
    we have all seen the no name ebay lowering components all day long. in the past i have used the "coilover" version on my 98 ej8 for mild performance and appearance and have been happy with the result considering the cost effectiveness. (good bang for your buck). and now i have a new budget build...

    Suspension Corner
    I’m trying to make a good suspension for the conditions here in Alabama that will also adapt to conditions in California, in terms of performance and reliability. That means money, yes, I know.
