    so my boss is going to sell me his lude next summer after he buys a new TSX / IS...but he told me that he felt like the suspension on the lude was starting to go....the car has 101k....what would be the best shock and springs for 550-650


    i was thinking the adj tokicos with h&r....but the tein basic are nice too......and since he is selling me the car i want to get the best in that price range....i did want to try and get him to buy some sway bars i think he would budge....


    what do you guys think...its just going to be a daily with I/H/E when i get it.....

    test pipe will be louder than a hi-flow cat (basically just a glasspack).

    if you got a hi-flow cat for it I'd use it.

    the test pipe will make the car smell like ass and the exhaust will be a lot louder and have a rhaspy sound [​IMG]
    run the high flow cat

    and a highflow cat is nothing like a glass packed muffler... it still has the catalist material in it it is just more open allowing better flow

    why bother putting i/h/e on a daily driver? a lude is more than quick enough for a DD. same deal with sway bars... wtf.

    just get some oem-ish suspension and call it a day

    yeah thats true........but the rsr is worth its weight in gold ....and i'm not paying for it.....i think the blues will do though.....he did say some of the cost will be aded to the car in the end..
