    What performance struts are available?

    I want to purchase a set of H&R lowering springs for my car but there are no struts available that can handle the spring rate. I read a thread about people revalving Bilsteins but they don't make anything for our cars anymore. What are you guys running or what's available now?

    these are pretty reasonable price and you can lower your car very easy. I woundn 't get the kit I got but the regualr kit has some more sane spring rates.

    I've read mixed reviews on them , but D2 make a couple different fully adjustable coil over set ups for the 3 g , if i could find reviews on the flash, tarmac rally ones , i'd be looking at some of those .
    Not super cheap , but still fully adjustable

    Yeah I actually read your post prior to starting this. I wasn't really wanting to spend $1,000 on a car worth the same amount honestly. Plus I saw you said the rear rides like shit. You ever get that sorted out?

    On the cheap if you want a lower look I would just cut one coil off each spring and use the stock struts.

    As far as the ride on the K sports no not much better still a roller coaster on the highway more or less. I might get them shock dynod this year but Im not sure I want to put alot into them.

    That sucks. I think I'm gonna get the H&Rs and just have some struts made for the car.

    I think your looking at $200 at min. per strut. Most of the places I have called in the last 5 years just hung up the phone on me.

    Only other thing I could think of is buy something for a Civic/Acura and use the Accord top hats.

    If you are really looking I would like to get a set of Motion made maybe we can go in together.
