What do you mean? I only have the Tein Basis so they only offer ride height adjustable no damping

Thank you sir! Big fan of your build btw.
Where did you pick up your mid rear strut bar? What kind is it?
Clean ride! Those regas :drool:
Thanks man! I sold them :( I want another set again haha

I bought it off Ebay it was just a no name brand, highly do not recommend. First bar they sent me was to short and i got a replacement which never fitted properly. I don't use it anymore but Mugen does make a genuine mid bar .
Good to know. Thanks a lot man! I was a little hesitant about the no name bars so ill just stay away.

Np! I think M&M Honda makes on as well but not 100% sure. Ever since then I stayed away from replica parts haha.
