Re: Suspension question/Spring Rates, etc.

This one crops up every few weeks, still haven't seen anyone actually buy the BC's though. 10k is a bit stiff for the front for the street and coupled with a 5k rear is going to make for some interesting cornering. You'd be much better off with Koni sports with Ground Control sleeves and Eibach springs, you can customise the spring rates at the time of ordering, just tell them what you want to use it for.

That Integra must be running a seriously big rear sway bar, the rear wheel looks like it has barely dropped at all (I'm assuming the photo was taken with the car stationary). You can put some fairly massive bars in a 5th gen (I think Neuspeed made a 28mm hollow bar at one point) but be warned that the sway mounts on Preludes aren't exactly solid. In order to clear the 4WS system on the 4G the rear bar is spaced down off the chassis rail by a few inches rather than mounting it directly to it or the crossmember (as in Civics and Teggies), makes for a lever action that can pop the mount out of the chassis rail (like it did to mine). They never fixed it for the US 5th gens even though none of them have 4WS. If you put a big sway bar in then put some serious consideration to beefing up the mounts.
