here it is...
looks really clean, keep it that way!
will do..picked it up from a used dealership..they seem to have bad luck selling "imports" areound this college,mainly because its a bunch of hick ass pricks.
must've been garage kept
Base model? Looks really clean...
no,its the si..its absolutely clean.the only issues i can see so far is the underhood webbing has rust which is seeping into the hood causing wierd spots..as well as the trunk..nothing a little carbon wont fix.
i say moderate drop on real springs or coilovers and nice set of wheels. leave all else
plans are skunk2 lowering springs(2-2.25drop) and id like to get white wheels,id absolutely love regamaster evo's,but i will settle for less.and ive got some other small plans for it.but we all know how quickly i go through cars LMAO.
you live in Ohio?
lol yes..ive been here since last october,and im still here until atleast february 2014.
should look nice with those wheels.
Congrats. Fun cars.
skunk 2's ride like ass. Get a full set of coils.
yea but unless i can find a used set(theyre fucking expensive) im gonna have to go a different route.
thanks..yea ill look into that.i wasnt aware of the ride quality.
injen. i dont blame you. do what you can. if you dont plan on keeping the car for a long time i wouldnt bother spending the cash that they want for the real ones.
if anything ill sell you my rfp1s lol.
also im riding on ebay coils with stock struts. rides pretty good. im not slammed out tho.
Eibach? Loved their sportline series on my Camaro.
ive done the ebay coil deal on a couple cars of mine,but im going to do this one the right way. im going to read a bunch of reviews on a couple different brands and talk to our steering and suspension guy here to see what he recommends.
never been a fan of eibach.idk why,they just dont sit too well with me.
Gotcha. Theyre so cheap that I've thought about throwing a set on the Si forever to fix its height issue. lol But didn't wanna spend the money just to turn around and sell it. You still have the S10? If I can ditch it and maybe a couple guns I'd still be interested in it.
just did some researching and i might just go with skunk2 coilovers on skunk2 struts,but not the full bodied set they have.
Do you need adjustability? And do you want it to be pretty low? If you just want a moderate drop, I'd grab one of the Tokico kits. It comes with shocks and springs and should lower it 1 1/2 to 2". I think I bought it new off of an E-Bay store for under $400. Didn't end up needing camber adjusters either. If you go with a slightly bigger wheel and tire it should fill up the wheel wells nicely.
If you want it slammed though, then yeah, you'll have to do coils or a different set of springs...
