    Hello all, long time lurker here and wanted to make an introduction post. Figured I'd include a question with my introduction. I'm a lube tech at ford and from Charlotte NC.

    Hey guys. So i'm really just looking for some advice on coilovers. I do not plan to own the car for long but, even still do not want to buy EBAY coilovers. I would like to spend somewhere between $400 and $500 for a name brand set that comes with everything. Is this possible? Does anybody know...

    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...

    Welp, here it is. A build thread. Figured since I'm doing some major updates to my car in the next month that I should start one. Anyway, my car is a 1990 ED6. Standard model. Hatchback. Red. History time. A long time ago. Somebody owned this car, and the d15 decided it didn't want to run...

    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...

    I'm running some Tokico blue shocks, and ebay adjustable springs, (unsure of the rate), because I"m on a budget. My question is, seeing as how the Tokicos are not super top of the line, how low do you guys think i can set my ride height without prematurely blowing the struts? (Roughly. I mean...

    Just bought a 93 Del Sol SI a couple weeks ago. Needs new coil springs and struts. Wondering what would be a good setup. Not looking for high performance as its my daily driver, not racing. Wouldn't mind the option to lower, but not necessary. I'll be driving an average of 120 miles a day in...
