    '85 SEi Coilovers Daily Driver

    Hey it's been a while since I posted but I'm back babeh.

    The Honda hasn't been doing too great; the trannys slipping, the suspension is worn, and the timing belt has an unknown mileage on it.

    The car looks worse right now, I've sanded the clear off and the trim is off the car.

    No pictures yet.

    But, I've bought new parts:
    -Rack and Pinion
    -Lower/Upper Control Arms w/ ball joint
    -cv axles
    -outer tie rods
    -D2 Coilovers
    -Timing Belt
    -Water Pump
    -Rear Main Seal
    -Camshaft seal

    And a rebuilt transmission!

    Will update when I get the parts installed.

    D2 Coilovers have arrived! They're machined really nicely... Feels like a shame putting em' on knowing how dirty they're gonna get... lol

    That's kinda low. Have you checked the fluid level and the TV cable adjustment?
