    is this correct??? It doesn't sound right to me why the rear would be stiffer than the front. weight distribution, weight transfer during braking...all suggest front should be stiffer. and pretty much any front spring I've ever seen was beefier than the rear. yet I've seen threads and even...
  3. Suspension & Brakes EP3
    Hi All, I buy EP3 CTR few days ago, together with the car I get WEITEC lowering springs (not install yet) I send email to WEITEC regarding the spring rate and drop, they replay with the rate (the drop will be verify in the beginning of the week). Now what look to me weird is the rate, see...

    Hey Guys, I've had Raceland coilovers on my car for about 2 years now, but noticed that the rear springs are pretty soft. Raceland states the rear springs are 417 lbs/inch. I was wondering if any of you knew if the RSX rear springs would be considered "stiffer" ? The rear springs for the RSX...

    Hey all. Thought I would post this cause I was confused and wondering how to convert it and thought some of you guys would wonder how too. Post taken from another forum. If your shopping for new springs this info might help you decide what you want. 1lb = 0.45359237kg 1in = 25.4mm...

  9. Auto X & Road Racing
    Did quite a bit of research and need some advice on spring rates. Setting up my EM2 for the road course, not Auto-X. Road surface is relatively smooth. Motor is swapped with a K20A2. I'm looking to run these spring rates: 650/1000 (12k/18k). Should I run a higher rear spring rate? Possibly 1300...

    It seems EM2 springs will fit on 02-04 RSX struts with 02-04 top hats on the front (I'm assuming 05-06 rear tophats will fit just fine). My RSX is my daily driver, and while it's probably seen more track time than most cars on here, I'd enjoy a little softer ride. I'm sure my stock 80k mi...

    getting a RH very soon. just wanna hear you guys' opinion on them.
  12. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    Hey guys I read awhile ago that if you get a 6k spring for the front for n+ it will go lower? Is that true and also where would I be able to get it at? I've tried also searching but couldn't really find anything.

    Sup guys. Just got new tires and alignment today. Here are my wheel specs: 16x7 Rota Torques 40Offset Front camber: -2.2 Front Toe: -.01 Rear Camber: -0.7 Rear Toe: 0 One thing to note is that the DC5R LCAs add a shitload of negative camber. Before with the HFP suspension and one camber...

    Wat is the safest drop rate to go with for an 04 RSX-S. I do have a ApeXi N1 cat back exhaust, and it does hang a little lower than factory exhaust. I don't want to scrape or break anything, I was thinking 1.5 front 1.5 back?

    So I just put my HFP suspension back on and got it aligned at goodyear. I had an Ingalls camber kit front and back so I thought I would be able to get the settings I wanted (it's supposed to be able to adjust 1 degree), but below is came out to...they "said" that negative camber was maxed in the...

    I've been running my new sets of Tien SSP coilover for over a week. Although handling improved over stock, i am not satisfied. I still get noticeable body roll. The front is fairly stiff , but the back is too soft, and my damping rate is at 3/3. I want to completely remove body roll so my...
