    I'm buying a '94 Ls Integra to make in to a full Drag car and was wondering what would be the best suspension set-up for it? It's going to be an all-motor street car if that helps with the choices?

    Eibach sells a very nice and very expensive setup. Give them a call, hell, they can design one specifcally for your needs. Either that or get a good set off coil/strut setup. The main thing behind a drag susp. is the tuning of it. not neccessarily the brand. look at spring rate, dampining force, rebound, etc...

    Is the tein set-up any good? The one where you can adjust the settings from inside your car. My buddy has it on his daily driver and loves it but will it work on a drag car.

    :ditto:

    You want something that has Very stiff springs in back, and relativly soft in front. If this is going to be an all out drag car, this setup would be bad ass

    the btcc civics actually run setups with super stiffys in the back(rear are like twice the spring rate than in the front).

    What rates does that equal out to? I was thinking of 450 front and 900 rear.

    i just noticed...do you mean 400lb/in,1200lb/in? because 400 and 1200 kg/mm is rock hard, literally.
