does anyone know the model name for the wheels that are on there?
I'm going to find them if its the last thing i do haha

Rial Alloy Wheels 17x8

You can get them through many wheel shops, although that exact wheel design may be a little old and hard to find.

I like the Max, it actually handles pretty well w/coilovers... but the Accord's suspension is world class, almost 20 years later (other than space-wise, no need for the rear suspension to take up so much room). The cars are cheap and easy to mod, and in abundance. :mad: Only thing is finding one in good running condition, and keeping up w/maintenance...

yeah the CB chassis was shared with the Prelude for two generations apparently, in the CL, Odyssey, ....

can't wait to put in new bushings and Koni Yellows.

Given the dimensions of the car, it really doesn't take up much more space than a strut setup, and I would rather give up the .5" of interior space for a superior suspension design. Most of the rear suspension is under the floor, and most of the front suspension is below the shock towers.

Great article I really liked it! I am also very curious about what offset those wheels had. They look to be fairly low-ish dont they? Maybe something like +32 or +35?

those wheels were very wide, so yeah, it might have been a pretty low offset, 32-35 my guess too.

Koni Yellow dampers with some Neuspeed race springs, or a set of FFII's might be better than what they have spec'd out for their suspension. This article is a good 10 years old.

I am really debating getting a bigger rear sway... with Goodyear Eagle RS-As and 440/300# springs on Illuminas the car does NOT break traction under nearly any circumstances (I have yet to), but it leans so heavily. I almost feel like I don't have sway bars. I'm at the absolute limit of the balance of handling and traction spring/shock wise (Yellows would def improve low speed damping but it's not worth the $$$ to me), but a rear sway would keep the lean in check. Hopefully keep a little weight off the outside tires and prevent scrubbing.

Wow, this is awesome. I just recently have been looking into what I'm going to run for my suspension setup and this is extremely helpful.

That build uses Illumina shocks, which are pretty crappy honestly. Even the AGX is a better shock, and most definitely a Koni, and some full coilovers. They were able to achieve high skidpad g's with that setup, so using today's better parts and technology, a 1g cb7 isn't unreasonable at all. I bet Ronald_Type-R's does more than that.
