good drop?

hey i have some KYB GR-2's and plan on purchasing some Neuspeed springs. Is this a good combo? Also anyone know of a good camber kit instead of some bull****.

GR-2 with Tein S-Tech is what I had for 3 years. Comfy, dropped like 2.5" clean and ride was smooth. The shocks did not last for the beating they recieved. I had a rear passenger blow out on me - leaked out oil.

I got lucky recently, and scored some JDM coilovers. What I mean by JDM is True JDM Tein Coilovers only sold in Japan for the 90-97 wagons. The ride is a dream, the tension of the shock ( non adjust ) is perfect for the weight. The spring is tight, and responsive. The model is Driving Master Low Down Type Wagon Tein Coilovers. Good luck finding those in N.A ... and if you do buy them they are great for the weight of our car, since they are designed for the wagon's weight.

I have no doubts that the Neuspeeds and GR-2 will match up well, but IMO if you're going to pocket out 400-500$ for suspension, might as well pay a bit more and get an adjustable height for 600-800$ and it will last years and years dropped because of the monotube gas / shock designs in the coilover and the spring quality.

If you do want to do a shock / spring combo, the "best" option would be for some bilstein shocks and your Neuspeeds or Tein S-Tech Springs. I've also heard good things about the Accords on H&R race, but I have those on my civic and the ride is very race and rough.


Camber kit I am using is an ingalls knock off ( R-1 Sports ) they have poly inserts and squeak a bit ( WD-40 even so often )But that will be the case with no matter which camber kit you buy, unless you buy the full camber / top plate kits that are offer buy skunk2, but they don't offer accords, only civic's and tegs ...

these would be sick to have

you could also try the combo of GR2's with Ground Control Coilovers.

Ground controls with some kyb agx make a good combo also....

4 cyl springs will drop the car lower since ours are heavier, thats an option too. Anyone try s-techs or h&r 4 cyl springs on our cars? If so how much drop did it give you?

what size tires are you running on that drop? looks pretty close in front to rubbing or hitting the top of the wheel well during a bump

these were 205/60/15 studded winters
I would not rub with my 215/50/16 it was just right, but really low and downpipe was flat from bottoming out so many times

summer mode








another winter shot to get you an idea from far
