I have skunk2 pro s and i love them. they go super low and they ride stiff but its not that bad. i dont even notice it anymore
If your only looking for a mild drop like myself is go with eibach pro kits I've been searching all week and forums along with all my local race shops say the same...I also ran them on my 92 integra the ride was pretty good felt planted hugged corners very wellim not looking to lower 2 inches i just want something a little more aggressive that can be daily driven, and living in wisconsin snow plays a role in that too.
H-Techs really don't lower much. The difference is there, but mostly only to you. Majority of other people probably wouldn't notice the drop. That, and they are very soft springs, like basically OE springs. So, no real improvement in handling either. In the end it's a lot of money for nothing..i have a 2000 civic si and am thinking of the tein h tech lowering specs, any thoughts on these, i have 15's on the car now in your opinions would it look better lowered 1 inch with 15 or 16 inch rims
Just FYI, you can get the Koni/GC setup for about $720 shipped. http://www.clubcivic.com/board/showthread.php?t=207126&page=3. Find deals like this on the shocks and buy the coilovers direct from GC. Just takes a little research to get a great deal on amazing products.go coilovers you can get progress cs-II's for about 600 dollars, function and form type 1's for about 700 and if you source it right a koni yellow's/ground control spring set for 8-900 bucks. all three of those will be a good set up, lower you at least 2.5 inches and handle very well
Read above for Teins. They will improve handling, but only slightly. Skunk2's are pretty stiff and would work out better if you want to be slammed, I wouldn't recommend them for a simple nice daily driver. If you have a 5th/6th gen, you can get the Progress CS2 coilovers for under $600 shipped. $2000 coilovers are pointless unless you're building a dedicated race car looking to win stuff.So what's everyone think about the teins? To soft? I was thinking of them also for my dd just wanna close the wheel gap as for the op h tech you probly won't even notice the drop I've been researching stechs but worry its more for looks than anything with no handling improvement also looked at skunk 2 but worry too stiff for dd coils are absolutly the best way to go but not everyone has 700_2000 bucks laying around
If you want a good, noticeable drop that won't sacrifice ride comfort and you can use stock shocks, I'd personally suggest the Tokico lowering springs. I have had them on my '99 Civic EX daily driver for a year and a half and they lower the car about 1.6" or so and it's pretty level all around (as oppose to having too much rake or reverse rake like some springs give). The springs are a little stiffer than OE, so handling does improve a little bit. But, ride comfort is not sacrificed. No one who rides in my car ever mentions anything about it, feels great. And this is on original 145k mile shocks... Hell I drove my grandmother around a bit and she didn't say a thing lolim not looking to lower 2 inches i just want something a little more aggressive that can be daily driven, and living in wisconsin snow plays a role in that too.
I would also suggest the Eibach Pro-Kits as an alternative to the Tokico's. Roughly the same drop as the Tokicos but a little stiffer. Since they are stiffer, they may be pushing the limits of the stock shocks. But, those springs have progress rates so you could be fine using them with stock shocks for a while.If your only looking for a mild drop like myself is go with eibach pro kits I've been searching all week and forums along with all my local race shops say the same...I also ran them on my 92 integra the ride was pretty good felt planted hugged corners very well
