Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.

476 for 4? Thats pricy.

Heres the link... Only $360 shipped to your door.

Tokico Blue HP Shocks Struts Set Honda Prelude 92 01 BB1 BB2 | eBay


Since you said 476 for all 4... sound like you can afford then I would recommend...

Koni shocks

Koni Yellow Sport Shocks Struts Set 92 96 Prelude | eBay



If you ever considering want to go low a little more than your current setup with good shocks, then

Fuction & Form Type 1 full coilovers.

Function and Form Type 1 Coilovers for Honda Prelude 92 93 94 95 96 s SI V Vtec | eBay


Good luck!

HP Blues?

someone's selling those where I live for $200 brand new. I would've picked them up but heard they aren't very good for drops over 1.5''. Wasn't impressed what I saw in reviews either hearing they weren't much better than stock. Stock is good, just not for lowering. If I want stock I'll get OEM.

You can get bilsteins for 476.00. Those are up there with koni.

Spend a little more and get a coilover system.
