    Re: Ordered the Ksports full body coilovers today

    O.K. I'll try to answer everyones questions.

    How much lower can you get on those? Are you even close to the bottom yet?

    - The front can go ~ 1 1/2"- 2" lower. The rear can go another ~1". I know you guys really can't tell but the rear has 205/55 and the front are 205/50. I'll explain later.

    Looks pretty decent.. Come back when you're tucking tire

    -Its my daily so tucking tire won't be happening soon. However I love the look of a slammed car!! Maybe if I get 17's.

    Ive had my coupe in the garage loking just like that, clean, low and beautiful. as the years roll on and the car doesnt move the cleanliness goes away. You have jkust made me so eager to take the car out of the garage for a photoshoot its pathetic. Thats very nice man, seriously Im jealous. How about a distance measure from tire to fender and ground to fender or body?
    When you got the alignment done, how much adjustment was left and what are you using for camber adjustments? The tires still look great for setup. im wondering if they would take another 1/2-3/4 in lower? Thanks and great job

    -Thanks for the compliment! I'll take some measurements this weekend. Theres not to much fender gap. I'd like there to me none but not right now. I need something later to change up.
    -I'm waiting for my UCA prelude arms still. As soon as those come in I'll take it to get the alignment done. I'll let you know what camber I'm at when I get the align done.

    If I had another person taking the pics I wouldve done it but I was dirty as is. I figured everyone knows what it looks like. I still gotta take the front wheels off again so I'll take a few shots when I install my UCA's and bushings.

    Again thanks for the comments! Car handles nicely now. Almost done with the suspension so that'll be one thing off the list!

    phillie, have you played around with the adjustment at all? What are you running it at now?

    On another note I installed the SIs and the coilovers today. I finished late since I had to work today and make height adjustments. I'll take pics tomorrow. I left the dampner on the settings from factory and so far so good. I'll have to drive around more to get the feel. Springs dont feel to firm but then again I need more road time. I'll get pics up tomorrow.
    Jumping in late I wonder if the spirng rates is really what is advertised?

    Do you know off hand what the dimensions of the springs are so we could use Eibach springs possible?

    I would get your alignment check before worrying about the camber I bet its right were you would want it anyway performance wise.

    Re: Ordered the Ksports full body coilovers today

    I totally missed the update on this thread. Car looks really good lowered now, I think the height is good.

    After rolling my fenders and adjusting my ground controls yesterday I am strongly considering this setup. One of my ground control sleeves seems to have been damaged when the suspension unloaded under fast driving, and i'm just not overly happy with my setup.

    Please keep us updated on how these are holding up, as I am very interested.

    Thanks!! Wheels and lowering the car really made a big difference. Brought out the best in the car!

    Yes I have been. Right now I think think I have it exactly where I want it for my daily driving. With that said I have about 18 clicks to the stiffest setting.

    Thanks. I always wondered how everybody included all the quotes!

    I've got at least a couple thousand miles on them and they're holding up great with no problem!!

    All the info needed is on the first post.


    However with everything said I'll probably be selling the coilovers soon.

    I just picked up my EG yesterday and will put LXi back to ALL stock. Keep it for my second car while I'm doing all my work on the EG and if my wife ever needs to drive it I don't have to worry about her F'ing her up. I'm going to focus all my money on the EG since they're are plentiful parts for it. I plan on doing another H22 swap in it like I did years ago. This time around they have engine mounts made. Before I had Dr. Charles from Wicked racing do my full set up.

    So if anyone maybe interested in my set let me know. I don't know if LX-incredible will pick them up since he's local. He has driven my car with them in. Granted my bushing are crap and it still handles great.

    I may be interested. Depends on how much you want for them, and how much money you've got when you decide to sell them. send me a pm or something.

    Re: Ordered the Ksports full body coilovers today

    I already have jdm GALES yo on the eg right now and some ssr ex-c superfins so I won't need the SI's. I told Angus if he wants them but you guys can decide who gets them. I've got the new 205/50 on the front and 205/55 on the rear. Also have an extra wheel and 205/55. So 5 wheels and extra tire. All tread good.

    Yea I know about Dr charles @ skunk now. I used to be at his old shop almost everyday when he was doing my H22 swap. This was back in 2000 I think. Let me know what you guys decide.

    Ill still hit the yards with you guys. I have to goto minnesota this weekend for a wedding.

    Re: Ordered the Ksports full body coilovers today

    If you've still got the coilovers when I get some extra spending money then I'll definitely pick them up off of you. I might have enough after my next paycheck, but I've got some other parts to replace first unfortunately.
