600$ isnt much... maybe get new brake rotors and pads with SS brakelines?

coilovers are best, but you can't find a new set for that price. you might be able to source a used set or pick up some better shocks and springs.

Incorrect.

You can pick up a set of Function Form Type 1's for that. Height adjustability but no dampening adjustability, which is what you really need if you plan to do a lot of spirited driving. I'm running them on my car, great value for the money. My only complaint is that they should have gone with a stiffer spring rate in the rear than 6k.

fine I guess if I'm going to be called out I won't worry about hurting other people's feelings.

you can't get a really nice set for $600.

It depends on what you're using them for. Like I said, if you're wanting to do a lot of spirited driving, than getting something with dampening adjustment would be better.

And to get something that's 10 times better, you're going to have to double your money.

No kidding, I've never said the Type 1's are really nice. But they were the perfect application for me at the time. They're just a nice daily driver friendly alternative to the high performance coilover that will never be be put through the motions that it was created and designed for.

Re: Suspension upgrade, whats the best bang for your buck?

Sway bars are the way to go. Try ST sway bars heard good things. Strut Towers/Bars are also good helps prevent body role just skip the cheap ones if you want a good one. the ones for the Type S preludes are good but the Neuspeed are the best for their mounting points. Or you could go with a set of coilovers. Or you can get good lowering springs like H&R and get a set of Tokico Blues to have a good performance stance with great shock reaction.

Some good springs and sway bars were going to be my next suggestion. I felt a huge difference upgrading the rear sway to the beefy Progress version.

Re: Suspension upgrade, whats the best bang for your buck?

I would say for $600, you can get some skunk 2 sleeves and some Kyb shocks. And later on save some money for some sway and tie bars as mentioned above. Because a full coilover set will run you close to $800 bucks. But if your lucky you can find a good used full coilover set on your local craigslist for cheap. But buying used is not the greatest idea. I just happened to get lucky on mine. I bought my full Tanabe suspension for $350, used and they guy only had it on his car for a few weeks.

tanabes f&r are something like 500$ together

but as you can see there isnt much money left after that so.... you just have to pick one thing (exept shocks&springs/coilovers) and start saving for others

Re: Suspension upgrade, whats the best bang for your buck?

I went for a canyon run last weekend with my Ground Control/Koni yellow struts and some nice falken ziex tires and it handled great! Felt no body roll but kinda hard to tell when your moving side to side because of the turns. If you want improved performance handling for track, canyons, etc this is the way to go. Adjustable dampening and height adjust ability. I haven't tryined function &from type 1's but for canyons they would suffice but I feel like they are more for lowering your car more than anything imo.

Ran about $375 for ST sway bars and new Moog endlinks all around.

Lude is much more pleasurable through the curves now...very happy with this upgrade!

Re: Suspension upgrade, whats the best bang for your buck?

I would focus on either lowering the car or upgrading the sway bars. My next upgrade is going to be ST sway bars and some chassis bracing, then Energy polyurethane bushings, BC Racing coilovers, and some braking upgrades. Then I'll focus on wheel and tire stuff. For $600, you won't be getting too much of anything good. I'm already $500 in with these used JIC coilovers, lol.

Thanks for all the replies! Yeah, I'm thinking about upgrading the sway bars for a start. My car is already lowered, it's seriously 3 inches from the ground I don't want to lower it anymore, tiny speed bumps are killing me:/

Yeah.. I like the FF type 1's. You're not tracking the car... so why spend a grand+ for suspension if you're not going to use it to it's full ability EVER? Just saying

So i've made my decision on what i'll buy. I want A front and rear sway bar and front and rear strut tower bars. Any brands you guys recommend for these things? It'll be much appreciated!

If your cars dropped that much, should probably consider coilover system first or even new shocks. Your stock shocks will probably be blown. FF is great, but I run Tein SS on both my TSX and I had them on my Prelude. Look for a used set if you're short on cash. You can find them for $600.

I've actually found a rear anti sway bar to do a lot more for it's money when it comes to handling. Strut bars are a great addition if you have money to spare but never found them to be a huge improvement. More then anything, it's an aesthetic.
