Kind of a suspension story. What do you all do for alignments? I'm lowered and barely get on the alignment rack as it is, but i'm about to add a front lip which will definitely screw that up. Do i just remove my front bumper every time I need an alignment?

I have about a one to two finger gap all the way around. but I have no clue how far i am from the ground. As for alignment shops are you talking about places like firestone, etc. or actual custom shops?

Try finding a shop that has a rack that's flush to the ground. I'm at 1 finger gap with the sti v-lip and had no problems getting the car on the rack.

Yeah that's the problem haha finding a gap. When i was in Nashville (bigger city) I found a old shot where I just drove straight on, and the person working was in the ground. But since then I have not found a shop that has a set up like that one.

Hey guys, I'm new to the club I've been having my rsx for a while now and I've been thinking about coilovers. Tein coilovers doesn't seem bad. Any others I could check out?
I want a smooth ride. I have a stock body and I wanna know if a 3" drop will look good on it.
It's an rsx 2002.
Thank you!!

Does any one have any pictures of the rear lower control arms by Kseries installed on their RSX? They look great in the picture but they look too dark, not sure if you'll be able to notice them while under the car.

They got one review on kseriesparts but of course no pictures.

Kseries LCA

Thanks,

are pillow mounts interchangeable? I think I have a faulty pillow bearing in my right top mount. I am planning to replace my top mounts. The problem is I do not know the brand of my coilovers. Can I use any mounts to replace the broken one?

is that worth the extra money?
it is up to you buddy. are you the type to have something and just use it or going to be messing with the damping quite often to get the advanced? most people use it right out of the box which are set to about the middle and they say it feels just fine. now you may want to have it more one way or another so you could adjust it (more than once) to get it just right.

if i were to get one, i would go for the street advanced just in case i want to change something down the road. it also doesn't seem to be a huge difference in price...

with the advanced, setting it to 0 would be the stiffest and 16 would be softest. you get the ability to set it anywhere between for that feel you want.

totally up to you man

What’s up everyone. I just got some used Broadway Static 500s and the rears didn’t come with upper mounts. I’m wondering if I can use my oem upper mounts? I have an 04 type s and the guy I bought them from had an 05-06.
