    I'm planning to get my b18c5 swapped in my 98 civic ex (sedan) next week. Question is, since i want to change my suspension (coz my ractive dual coilovers suck) what do you guys reccomend? i want full coilovers, and since i have a b18c5 engine won't i need a higher springrate since it's a B series engine and has more horsepower? what springrate kg/mm is recommended for front and rear? thanks!!

    it depends on how u want the car to handle. most out of the box coilovers will have spring rates taht will make u push/understeer, that is just out of safety for the most part. if u want more oversteer u can swap the fronts and the rears. if its just daily driving, 8 and 6 should be fine for u.
