    Hey guys, I,m sorry that I opened a new thread. I just couldn't find anything helpful for my situation. I experience mild to severe bump steer depending on the size of potholes I run over. I have an 03 EM2 dropped on kSport coils anywhere from 2 to 2.5 inches. It has XXR 15 inch 0 offset 527's...

    After looking at many forum post about suspension options I've noticed a couple things: First, prices have gone way up over the year and many of the former budget options are no longer much cheaper than the nicer stuff. The blues are not that much cheaper than the yellows for example. Second...

    Hi all, I just purchased my first civic with 122k miles. It however needs some work. The previous owner put a bad spring kit on it without camber adjustments and due to my location I need my car back up at stock height. The roads are terrible here. These are my priorities: Stock height, please...

    How can I stop my spring binding on my TEIN BASIS Coilovers? Greasing only goes for so long. I even put the silencer rubber on each spring (2 on each) from TEIN. I heard about thrust bearings, would it work? NEED HELP.

    Upgrading stock 15" rims to 16/17": considerations? warnings? (gear diff, new susp?) Hi All, Just wondering where I should post about the implications of upgrading to bigger rims: -What does a bigger wheel/tire mean for my manual transmission? the speedometer? -is there a max wheel size to...

    So I purchased some CX Racing Coilovers and the rear doesn't seem to be able to sit very low but I can slam my car to the ground in the front. Idk if I'm just not dropping it the right way and if I did do it the right way I wanted to know if there's ways to drop it even lower than it is meant to...

    price isn't a huge concern. around 1000$ is the limit. A little over is fine if the coils suggested make a huge difference from others. But from what I see, most in that price range perform relatively the same. Opinions on favorite coil set that rides stiff? Just sold my Rokkors lol. lol. lol...

    So i got an offer to get some skunk2 basic coilovers for %230 brand new. I've heard that skunk2 is kinda shitty but i dont really care about the ride quality because i'm going to upgrade to a better setup at the end of summer. I just want to be low right now. Do you think the skunk2 basics will...

    Sup guys, I'm brand new to 7thgen. I've been on here for a while just researching stuff for my car but everywhere I go, there's always a million different answers. I just got an 05 civic special edition and plan to start modding soon. First is suspension. Big question is, what suspension set up...

    There's many different things that have been said about Megan Racing Coilovers, so we decided to create our own mega Megan Racing Coilover Review and Testimony by scouring the internet to find out what, you, the people are saying about Megan Racin Coilovers. We've even thrown in warranty...
  13. General Talk
    Im curious if anyone reading this has experienced the ride quality of their em2 with lowering springs on stock oem shocs and struts. I've been a bit edgy as to what to do, lower mine or not. thanks!
  14. General Talk
    Does anybody have any ideas or know of any place that offers lowering springs and/or coilovers at a good price for the EM2? thanks peeps

    Okay so my Ricelands just came in about 30 minutes ago. And I got an attachment with it saying that two different spring seats were included and you were to use the seat that went with your car according to date of manufacture. Only problem is that since these are made for the ep3, I don't know...

I just (yesterday) got my car back from the shop (1 week and $600), I had them put in an Energy Suspension kit. Sway bar bushings, front and rear. LCA bushings front and rear. This is what I had...

    For those of you who followed my last thread will know that i had my front control arms dropped off at a machine shop to have bushings pressed in. Well, i got the arms back in today and to say the least have been very satisfied with the result of the labor put forth. Overall the feel of the...

    I just thought I would see if anyone was interested in suspension parts that are made for the JDM civic. I am unsure about the differences if any for the two but the parts are good quality. I have a c-pillar from Ultra Racing right now for the Honda Fit and a rear strut bar as well as a rear...
