    Trying to get some feedback to see what you guys think are the best spring to go with on my 1991 rex with a B18A1 swap to get it a little lower. 2-2.5
    Thanks

    the best?

    but you probably can't afford them if you drive a honda.


    you need to be more specific about what you want the car to do.

    nearly every suspension on the market will lower you to some degree or another.
    but what do you use it for?
    street?
    autox?
    road course?
    drag?
    getting groceries?
    drifting?
    courier car?
    mcdonalds run?

    Neuspeed racing springs. Cant beat 'em.

    I am running neuspeed sport springs, with my rex/b18 but I would thing that the race springs would be even better with the additional engine weight.

    If I had a full-out race car I would use ohlins.

    They are WAY too overkill for the street.

    i just looked on Ohlins website...they dont even make a kit for Hondas except for the S2000. I guess they already know that if you drive a Civic or something you cant afford them. lol
