Photoshoot with new Koni/Gc drop

I did all the work myself (Shocks, springs, control arms, all urethane bushings)
Now here it is, it's a pretty moderate drop because I do plan on driving it. lol









I don't have a very good camera, so don't complain about the quality.

nice drop... not too much, not too little... I am about the same on my neuspeed sports and agxes... I still drag from time to time...

I also have the poly bushings... that makes a big difference in the ride and I love it... they are either underrated or forgotten...

don't plan on driving... DO!

Re: Photoshoot with new Koni/Gc drop

They are new springs. Give them some time to settle first and if they don't settle to your liking then, hey that's why you got coilovers.

woot.

Smart man buying this set up.. that is if they are yellows lol

Re: Photoshoot with new Koni/Gc drop

The drop is nice and subtle, just the way I like it. The rims emphasise the "luxury" part of the Prelude's sports/luxury breif, which I also like very much. Very nice.

Well, with the parts on order and everything... it took about a month for me to get it back on the road. But if I had a press for the bushings, and all the parts at once, I'd say no more than a week.
