    yeah someone told me they ride amazing. and apparently they come with a camber control built on so, thats saving money on not having to buy a camber kit

    Tokico Illuminas cost $800? Is that for a shock/spring combo? I don't think just the shocks themselves cost that much. But yeah, those K-Sports would probably be fine for you.

    As far as the camber adjust-ability feature though, what kind of car does your friend drive? On some cars you can adjust the camber via the upper mounts. On Hondas though, that typically doesn't work...

    my bad, i was talking about the illumina struts i found. they are about 800 on Nopi.com. i don't know anyone who has the ksport's personally. when i posted that old thread on a suspension upgrade i was talking about the illumina coilovers and someone mentioned the K-sports

    Ah, ok. Yeah, check up on that camber adjustment issue, maybe e-mail the seller. I'm pretty sure that it doesn't work with Honda suspensions. If you notice, it says in the description "not available on all models"...

    yeah well, that link i have posted said that it wasn't "available with certain vehicle models" so i guess your probably right. thats what was making me lean torwards buying them. i found a whole discussion thread about the K-Sports coilovers and i don't think i'm going to gamble with them. so many people like them but so many people hate them at the same time. thats never good. Tokico Illuminas FTW. thanks for the help though dude. rep

    Personal experience gone bad? Preference to something different?

    Just curious--will be looking into suspension in the near future as well and I am starting to weigh out my options. A little insight would be appreciated.
