Hi guys,
So looking for advice about redo suspension for my 1996 EX Coupe for DD and once a week on track ,
Right now everything is OEM on the car and its just dry and womble need to replace everything, thinking to start from bushings and coilovers.
from a quick search found a few stuff but dont really know if its good stuff:
found company named HardRace has Harden Rubber bushings and engine mounts and something called pillowball bushings, cant really understand the difference and what to order
also coilovers found options to order:
bc racing ds series (also bunch of customization there)
D2 Racing

Tein Flex Z

thinking to go with this setup:

Are those tires stretched? All seasons?
Best recommendation would be to get some proper fitting summer tires. Fanstastic upgrade for handling.

Progress coilovers might be an option for you.
not stretched R15/195/55 all season chinease tires
there actually holding pretty good soon being replaced to Proxes
its hard to drive the car because the oem suspension on the car are done and need to be replaced and i have a good deal on the three coilovers i mentioned in the post.

I run full Hard Race stuff on my built wagon. It works well. I would recommend PCI Spherical RTA bushings, I've run both and prefer the PCI part. Those will make a huge difference. As far as the coil over setup. D2's are decent, but the BC Racing, Progress CS2's or CS3's, or Fortune Auto coil overs will work better for track duty. Honestly, I'd recommend looking at the Progress CS3's so you get rebound and dampening control. They are extremely capable.
