Where to buy

So i am new to this forum and have had a EF for about 4 years now and theres not much more for me to do with the stereo in the thing so i was thinking of lowering the thing down a bit/lot and after reading up all over the net and this forum i am pretty sure i made my mind up on F&F type 1's

So my googlefoo has really only led me to one place jhpusa.com, there has to be some other place to get these coilovers. can anyone lead me to a supplier?

From what ive been told and read Yonaka Spec 1's and F&F Spec 1's are the samething and made with the same parts from the same factory. Now the only difference is the spring rates and the color of the paint. Can anyone verify if this is correct cause if it is in fact true ill get some yonaka's and make a review and plus there only $499.00 with free shipping.

F&F Spec 1 - Front 10k Rear 6k

Yonaka Spec 1 - Front 12k Rear 6k

well the F&F spec 1's were only $545.00 with free shipping so theres not a huge diff in price.

$45 can buy me something else for my car  Surprised  plus depending how stiff of a ride you want your car to be will depend on your spring rates I personally like stiff suspension so 12k works great but the 6k in the rear is still a little soft.

im sure it comes down to personal preffernce, im replaceing stock suspension from 90"

Yup very true did you look at getting a rear camber kit as well with your coilovers?

Good choice f&f types 1s are a good I like the way they ride
Weksos has them for close to 600 and jhpusa has tem for 575 so those stores aren't good I don't know what other online stores to get them from check out and local shop around you

has not crossed my mind, what would i need it for?

far as looking for a supplier i already picket them up off ebay, the local shop here are all ricer heads and im not really going for that, just want the car to look a lil better, its a 90' sedan LX and i have always like the way they look close to the ground

A rear camber kit would be so you can adjust your rear camber from uneven tire wear or if you like the negative camber look. But I would highly recommend it if you are going to lower your car at all and remember you should also get an alignment after you put your new coilovers on or a camber kit.

kinda figured i would need a align after the coilovers, i do have some heavy audio stuff in the trunk along with alot of dynamat, so maybe a camber kit is a good idea, thx for the tip
HondaJunkie

No problem man hope it works out for ya post some pictures when you get them  Very Happy

5N4FU

Nice. Let's see them pics  Very Happy

Rear is sitting too low atm, would drop the front down to make up for it but just in the little bit of driving i have done tonight i hit the ground too many times, so i hope sunday to have it fixed then i will put some pix up Smile
4dred6

What do you mean hitting the ground, is it that low?
5N4FU

the roads around here have a lot of hills, the real big problem i have is the turn in's, the little dips in the sidewalks, i dont just scrap its like a grind when i go in and out of most of them, car drives good just cant pull in anywhere, also the mudflaps on the front of the car are on the ground and are being sanded so to speak.

real crazy thing is the coilovers still have 1.5 inch to drop, so i suppose i could put the chassis on the ground or the wheels into the fenders, what ever hit first. a guy on this forum told me that unless i "modify" the coilovers i cant go "seriously slammed". maybe he ment i cant drive it slammed not you cant slam it. llike i said sunday i am going to adjust it so i can use the car
HondaJunkie

I know what you mean by scraping and grinding lol over time ive just got really creative on how I enter parking lots now. You can try going at different angles or sometimes you need to completely stop and creep over but people behind you get pissed haha. Or depending on the parking lot if you have multiple entrances you will have to find the best entrance but thats not always convenient.
4dred6

Dont get me wrong, but if you dont want your car to scrape dont lower it. I mean lowering suspension comes with it. My $0.02
5N4FU

well i can accept scraping but not bashing the ground and that is what was going on, so today i raised it about a inch and it has seem to help alot, anyway here is a pic finaly Smile

4dred6

it sure looks good  Very Happy
5N4FU

thx, still need that camber kit or im not gunna have any back tires soon Sad
