    I've had the pro-kit on both of my civic's. Coupled with the dampers they sell, I havn't found a better riding civic. Even with my short wheelbase there isnt a bouncy ride like most seem to give.

    wrong. the pro-kit is the firmer set. sportline is a more dramatic drop.

    I have the Skunk2's and the stance on the car is just right. This is only my project and it's not done yet so I couldn't tell you how it feels.

    You click on his name tag and goto "send private message to 97hatch". For instance in this post you will see "89' Project Civic" and if you were to send myself a private message you will see my screen name on this post and click on it then scroll down the list. Please post again if there is any confusion.

    its only giving me the options of viewing public profile, find more posts by him , or add him to contacts. i can mail other people but not him. and his page doesn't have contact info. i wonder if my profile isn't allowed to access him or not? anyways sorry to post off topic he just asked me if i still had my car and i do. and i have no way to mail him back and tell him i still have the 1998 jeep for sale if he is interested. sorry again and thanks for your time

    Not quite stock... well, FAR from- but you get the idea. The stock shocks and springs will just be black and black, and have no threaded anything for adjustments. Stock bushings are black, sway bar will not be present (unless you have an EX or Si).

    Are you talking about your stock suspension? If so, then you have springs. No Hondas ever came with factory adjustable suspensions. If they're aftermarket, then just look and see if they have a threaded collar on them...

    if we want to be technically correct
    most hondas come with "coilover" style suspension

    coilover has nothing to do with being adjustable... it simply means: coil spring over strut
    any time you have a coiled spring around a shock/strut, it is a coilover suspension

    most hondas are coilover suspension... older models were mostly coilover shock... most newer models macpherson strut design (coil over strut)

    for instance
    the rear suspension on a honda insight is not coilover suspension
    the shock and spring are separate
