my options

hey everybody i know there are countless threads on springs but is anyone familair with tanabe springs or rs-r springs...cuz i really like them better than others..but i cant find any info on them of ppl who have had them....but soon im goin to upgrade my suspension im not looking for a big drop but an average 'sport' drop... i have a small budget and im considering several options such as:

Tokico Illumina Kit- springs F: 1.5 R: 1.5
Tokico HP shocks/Tanabe Sustec DF210 springs with F: 1.5 R: 1.2
Tokico HP shocks/Neuspeed Sport springs F: 1.7 R: 1.5
Tokico HP shocks/RS-R springs F: 1.6 R: 1.2

My choice as of now is choice #2 but im not sure so if anyone has opinions or knowledge on these let me know..thanks

We're putting the Illumina kit on today along with a new rack and pinion. I'll take pics of course but reading your other options the other drop springs sound just stupid. Why would you wanna drop the front more than the rear? The car already has an agressive stance, making this ever more uneven would look stright retarted IMO.

2 reasons:
-The front is higher than the rear from factory, and it'll even it out.
-Or if you have a system and/or your battery in the trunk like me and the rear is about 1/2" lower than the front.

the front of my car is lower than the rear. also the tires on the rear of my car have a higher sidewall as well. It has more of an aggressive stance and the suspension has been tuned accordingly.
As for it looking "straight retarted", I think my car speaks for itself.

Am I mis-reading something here? On my Prelude, and every other stock Prelude I've ever seen, the rear end is higher up than the front end, with is pretty low to begin with. If you were to put a 1.7in drop in the front and a 1.5in drop in the back wouldn't the car look even more uneven? I'm just saying I wouldn't want that souper0mG!!=hotrod stance on my car lol.

have you ever seen a prelude right from the factory? maybe you're looking at cars with worn out suspension.

my hotrod stance is subtle and it could be bad for your health. just don't roll up next to me looking for a race! lol

dude just stick your hand in sideways on top of your tire and touch the fender with the other end and by finger measure....measure how many fingers it is stacked. on my rear....its about 4 and in the front its about 5 fingers in the front...but anyways do let me know on the progress of the installation

We're almost done with the front. Oil ****ing everywhere! Don't know if we'll save the rear for tomorrow morning or not. I'd take a picture of me flipping off the old rack and pinion but I don't want my camera dirty lol.

sorry to chime in so late but i wouldnt suggest going with number 2. I had the exact same setup on my lude and its unstable..the tanable df210 are grip springs but are very soft. and the tokicos are also very soft shocks..so you will end up swinging your car out if you take a bend too quick as i learned a few times..it looks good doing powerslides until you hit someone or somethingit also has a lot of body roll.
