Icon5 Springs? Struts? Anti roll bar? Where? how much? 89 prelude S

I just got a prelude 2 weeks ago. I was just looking online for springs and struts. I do plan on lowering my car but I can't find a solid source for Springs. I understand that is hard to find parts for my car since its a 89 and there arent many aftermarket parts for it. Im changing all the ball joints, cb boots, and anti roll bar(i need this also). I know im asking for alot but some help is just fine.

2.0 s carburetor
Im also new to this forum stuff soooo.. Guide me well sensei(s)

Re: Springs? Struts? Anti roll bar? Where? how much? 89 prelude S

First of all, we don't have struts, we have coil-over shocks. Now that that's out of the way, it's not clear to me what your poll is asking. Are you asking if you should do suspension or anti-sway bars? I would recommend that you upgrade springs, shocks, and anti-sway bars at the same time if possible. If you have to separate them, then I would upgrade the rear anti-sway bar first, but that's just me. I noticed the biggest difference in handling when I did that. But definitely don't upgrade just the springs or just the shocks. It's important to upgrade springs and shocks together for the best result. You might also look into a set of shock tower braces. I think there is a group buy still going on over at preludepower.com for them.

Contact 1funryd here or on the preludepower.com forum if you want a good adjustable coil-over setup. He regularly has group buys for K-Sports, which work well.

The anti-sway bars are no longer available so you really don't have any other options for that.

Our stock suspension is damn good already. But obviously there are better options now.

I got Ksport to support us in 2007, original group buy 0 Feeler for Coil Over System - Honda Prelude Forum : Honda Prelude Forums

And they made me a dealer in order to get it done.

Honestly if you upgrade to an adjustable suspention like Ksport there is no need to upgrade the swap bars.

You can still benefit from strut bars and replacing all bushings which will stiffen up the chassis quite a bit.
