Re: Suspension HELP?

i will sell you my entire suspensions set up real cheap.

i have the Eibach Pro Kit springs which will give you a 1.5" drop (no need for camber kit) and KYB AGX 4 way adjustable shocks. all of this has just under 1000 miles on it. practically new. it's a great set up but i'm lookin to go back to stock for a while.

i will do $400 plus your stock suspension.

let me know if you are interested. and wtf is the ICBC lottery? and congrats!

Re: Suspension HELP?

we need to know more about what you are looking for, fully adjustable? you want stiffness for performance or somethin that is gonna ride real nice? a full kit that comes with everything or do you want to piece something together?

Re: Suspension HELP?

your best bet would be the Tein Basic setup, and for $830 at JHP for everything you need isnt bad at all.

Re: Suspension HELP?

Nice lude, but if you're worried about ride comfort (which it sounds like you are), 18" might be a bad idea. I'd say stick to 17"'s or lower but it's your car brosef. Tein Coilovers on Koni Yellows FTW. You should get the EDFC too. Baller status.

Re: Suspension HELP?

yea definitely get something with EDFC. you can control your suspension on the fly while your driving. its ****in sweet and is major baller status. i would recommend JIC or function and form (F2). if you got the money like you say you do, screw tein BASICS. go a little more advanced then that. IMO piecing together isn't as good as a whole kit. a whole kit may be a bit more expensive but you get a lot of room to adjust to your liking. of course thats where the EDFC comes in, you don't have to stop, get out of the car, pop the hood and trunk, bust your your tools, go to work for a few minutes, get back in the car and drive. i haven't read much about EDFC so i don't know whats required or if certain kits work or don't work with EDFC

as for other recommendations, DON'T get cross drilled rotors. slotted are much better. i would recommend 17's as well. nitto neo gens are a really good set of tires for the price. i've used them on a few of my cars among other similarly priced tires, and i love them the most i've used them in auto-xing and they are very predictable when tire temps go up and down

definitely get a sway bar. and by A sway bar i mean THE progress sway bar. get the custom endlinks from 71DSP. they are a bit expensive but MUCH better then the ones progress provides.

AND last but not least... DO DO DO DO DO get poly-U bushings.

Re: Suspension HELP?

Thanks for all your help guys! thanks for the tip on the swaybar and bushings & rotors :) I'm not sure about the edfc it would probably only sit at one setting lol I just found out Endless only makes the fronts for my lude :( I was almost going to go with that...

Re: Suspension HELP?

Drew pretty much hit the nail on the head. Slotted rotors are great, and slotted AND drilled rotors are good too, drilled rotors are ok as long as the company that made them knows their **** (I.E. Brembo). The Progress sway bar is by far the best on the market, and you probably won't even have to worry about a front one. The point of the huge Progress bar in the back is to even out handling a little bit so it's more neutral.

Re: Suspension HELP?

I decided to go with the Tein flex coilovers I'm going to try it with out the EDFC for now I might add it later... I found out I cant use the 5zigen 5zr wheels 18 on the endless big brake system... I didn't go with the zeal suspension because it would be to stiff for what I wanted plus would of taken 3-6 months to get them custom made lol

Re: Suspension HELP?

Zeal is baller status, but not necessary IMO. What are you going to do for rims?

Re: Suspension HELP?

most luders would agree 5 spoke rims look the best. IMO though, the 2 piece look looks ugly. personally i think you can do better. i also think 17s always look 456342 times better then 18s too. 18s can look good. but often times they look to big for ludes. i usually don't like giving opinions on rim choices because i'm not you. i don't know what you like. case in point, you like those 5 spoke... but i think they are hideous. but the best advice i can give you is look in the members rides section to see what you like.

Re: Suspension HELP?

I like 5/6 spoke rims myself. I would never go as big as an 18" on a Prelude, but that's just me. I don't even like how my 17"s look/ride, I want to go down to 16's. But to each his own.

Re: Suspension HELP?

i used to have 18's and believe me my 17's are a whole lot better, plus they look alot better. i like a little bit thicker of a tire, gives it a meaner stance imo.

Word. There's a Civic Hatch around here that rocks some 15" Enkei's, so there's no low-profile tires, but it still looks so badass. That's why I wanna go down to 16" instead of 17".
