Hi my name is Slade and im from Richmond Va. I drive a 99 Honda Civic DX. I need your opinion about Skunk2 coilovers. I am getting a really good deal on them and i was wondering how they perform. I also am getting some shocks. What kind should i get and where should i get them.

Thanks for the help!

They are about the same as ground controls. If you can get a good deal on them, then I say get them.

Alright - thanks for the help! One more question for nightkids1. Did you ever put any shocks on your car or a camber kit? Is it true everytime you lower your car you have to get in realigned? Thanks for the help!

If you don't get the car realigned or get a camber kit you can definately expect to see the insides of your tires wearing quicker than normal.

And if you do plan on getting a camber kit, make sure you get get an alignment right after you install it. If not, you will have so problems keeping your car on the road.

yeah i have skunk 2 coilovers on my 97 civic with tokicon struts and next i have to get a camber kit because i could see the tires are going to wear out on the insides if i don't.
