    Which set of shocks is better? I drive a 95 civic ex coupe, and I want to really step up my autoX game. Tell me your experiences regarding both!! =)
    Thanks

    I don't know if youre going to find too many people that have experience with both. I had Illuminas in combination with RS*R springs on my EM1 and did some autox. It was a pretty good setup. I appreciated the ability to adjust front bound/rebound seperate from the rear. Then when the autox was over, I could dial them back to street settings and drive home

    What do you think about running illuminas w/stock springs? I'm trying to stay in the stock class for the time being.

    Koni Yellows are better.

    But I love my Illumina's. I turn em down all the way during the winter or on long drives and then I turn them up for regular driving.

    Koni's are better and there's a sale here on ClubCivic for them for $350 shipped, can't beat it.

    I have Koni's on both of the cars I AutoX and they are great. Probably the most popular and most widely used shock for AutoXing.

    Wow. That deal is freaking awesome. However, it's $435 (even with the "New Years Savings" thing). Heck of a deal regardless. I've even got a month and a half to save for them. =) Thanks for pointing out that deal, man.

    GAHH. I love you man. I want to smother my face in your Tiggies. I'm not actually sure if that's allowed on this site, tho. Thanks. Also, since I saw a few posts asking about whether they fit other models-specifically 92-95 civics-I'm assuming they fit mine? It says at the beginning of the thread that they fit 96-00 civics...
