wats good fellow members im really eager to lower my ride its an 05 rsx-s

the car is completely stock as far as suspension and I was really leaning towards

the sportline springs becuz the drop is perfect for my taste.:laughing:

now thru my research i no it is bad to buy just the springs and use them on stock

dampers. so thats out of the question what i really plan on doing is

eibach sportlines: 1.5 front and 1.7 rear

koni yellows all around or just the front??? or (vice-versa)

and ingalls rear camber


this is the setup i want to use.

now my question are:

1. how long will this last me i know it varies dependent on your driving style but
just a rough estimate?

2. would they last at least as long as stock suspension.

3. and are there any better dampers on the market besides the koni's??

thats all for now

any info is much appreciated

thanks

JAY

because ppl are lazy and dont search.................



T/S your set up with last a long time but if you are going to go out of your way and buy shocks and springs why not just get full coilovers...

I dont think coils is for you. If your shocks are still good just get springs with camber. I had eibachs and after year and a half killed my right side. I did lots of research before redoing my whole suspension. Koni max lower will be 1.5 drop. If you go further, pray.

How can you tell if your shocks are still "good"?

if your rsx is 05 it should still be in good condition ESP if you havnt add aftermarket springs. Usually you can feel the shocks but if you dont notice anything then no worries. For example, mine are shot. It sits real low and tire grinds on fenders on small bumps. I'll let you know when I install my goldline and konis in next week. Car just resting now.

Quick Question

Everywhere I look for Koni Yellow's for my car. I only find em for 02-04.

Nothing for 05-06...is there is a difference? Why don't they have the new years on there if not?
