Ya cant wait to get them, might order the rear tie bar too. Also a front strut bar needs to be added, likes to twist when launching  Twisted Evil

I would do it all at once bud. I like that your suspension is getting all done before serious motor mods go in. I had a dual point for the longest but had a super good suspension and I was losing people in the canyon runs all the time
89CivicSi

i dont have dual point!

89CivicSi

Awesome. I know you feel a difference too from hard cornering  Wink

How are the bushings?  Does that set of lca's seem like they are constructed well?   I saw them on eBay for about $80 shipped.   I bought a set of BWR polished ones for $160 and these seem pretty similar for half the cost.  Interested in hearing how much you like these.
89CivicSi

i think the bushings are just fine an everythin not to hard an went into place perfectly. the ride is real nice too
89 LX SOHC ZC

Nice im glad you got this taken care of ive been down and bought direct from them on a couple of occasions they're good people.
89CivicSi

well did some more work, switched out rear springs for lil more stiffer one, not sure on ride yet only drove once.

but heres how she sits now without the springs settled an almost maxed on lowering sleeve



might switch springs back if i dont like it, only for more low tho.

but this is scaring me from slamming it lol
EF4lyf3

She's looking pretty good my friend....more low!!! Lol
89 LX SOHC ZC

4dred6

89CivicSi
