    Hey, almost anything is better than rollin on busted shocks...(bet it was a pretty rough ride..)

    As far as my suggsetion for springs/shocks, if you want good performance go with Omni-Power Street coilovers.. there about $650. some of the best for the price.

    What about some Eibach Sportlines? That is what I bought for my Civic but I am still looking for some good shocks. I have the same springs on my Integra with stock shocks and it rides very good. That's the main reason why I bought a set for the Civic.

    i had those same springs on my integra like 4 years ago! not bad actually.

    i would not go with omni coils and not because of what happened with the collars. save and get some konis and gc sleeves. i have been through 5-6 different suspension setups and im still pissed i didnt get konis..

    i ran those on stock shocks with 40k on em and they were fine so i think tokicos will be alright for awile, my friend had those same shocks and they did go out after a yr or 2 driving very low.

    Type R OEM springs would be the best bet for a nice daily driver with a sporty feel. Either that, or Eibach Pro-kits. Not as much of a drop as Sportlines, and not nearly as stiff. Check out Tanabe too -.

    Congrats Mang..... Hope your trip went well and you didn't hit crazy traffic because of the fires like I did on my way up North. I have Eibach Sportlines and Tokico HP's
    on my Integra and I think they are pretty decent for the price I spent.
