That whole site is good stuff. I read the whole e-book quite awhile ago. That's usually what I have people read when they need to learn the basics and then a little more.

Added the Megan Racing EZ-Street coilovers, corrected the D2 lowering spring height, and added a good link to the first page.

This brings up a question does anybody know the specs on the DZ shocks? To run such an aggressive rate (which idk) you would think the shocks would be stout. I don't know if any true specs about them exist thats why the question popped into my head.

Question: Ebay springs on oem shocks... Guaranteed blowout? Even if it's only lowered an inch? I'm going to get some shocks, but just wondering in the meantime.

Depends on which springs you get from Ebay. You can buy almost any spring off of Ebay.

It doesn't just matter how low you go. How stiff the spring are also matters.

Anything other than stock springs on stock shocks is a bad idea though.

Got any info on these?

They are rated well in Europe, probs 3rd to KW and Koni.

These fit the CB, but naturally no rates to be found online.

So it seems that the H&R Race Lowering spring has been matched to the Bilstein adjustable ride height B14 damper.

So far then the marketed Bilstein B14 Pss coilover kit for our car is rated at 485F and 305R, and Bilstein have matched their dampers to the rates.

Also H&R coilover kit for our cars come with Bilstein springs. Kind of interesting. manufacturing buddying up there.

Anyway ive just installed them on my car in replacement and an upgrade from Megan Racing sleeves which were rate as we know at 450F 350R, putting the better damping to one side from the Bilsteins, i can feel the spring rate difference already.

In theory it would create mild understeer from the last setup i had as the fronts got stiffer, and the rear softer. But the dampening has delt with that perfectly as its completely neutral. Rides like lowering springs comfort, but with coilover handling.

Ksport Lowering Springs (supposedly the same as D2 Racing)
Skunk2 Sport Shocks
185&195/65/15 tires




My upper balljoints are autozone adjustable ones. My old joints were definately bad, and i had the ebay camber kit that automatically added way
to much camber, and were so cheap. The upper A arms were hitting the edge of the shock tower. Still want to get an alignment check.
