    So ive been going back and fourth on my suspension because everyone says something different. & I've experienced some shitty suspension where my boobs are just bouncin. lol! With that said, I want something GOOD, but that wont cost me a total fortune. I heard full coil overs are my best bet? What about brand?? Any input is appreciated :)

    Pic P1 coilovers. Relatively inexpensive, but they work awesome. I've had mine for awhile now and it still rides well.

    Welcome to the site, oh and post some pictures of yourself :p

    What is a fortune to you? I have buddy club n+ coilovers on my ek and they ride great. Cost about 1300 though but worth it.

    Cheapo ebay crap will do it to you. To do it right, you'll need to spend about 500 bucks on some decent shocks like a KYB AGX and a decent spring like an Eibach sportline.
    Or, more if you wnt better performance/adjustability.

    lests start with the basics.

    what car do you have? year and model.
    what kind of driving do you mostly do? Street/daily driver or track?
    what suspension setups have you tried that were too "bouncy"

    you will find a LOT of people recommending and using a Ground Control and Koni combination. its a good cost effective solution and performs well. plus you can get this setup with just about any spring rates you want. there are a lot of full coilover options available too, some cheap and generally not worth your time, all the way up to insanely pricey.

    lol I was going to say the same!

    Honestly, I have heard great things about Progress series II coil-overs that are in the $500-600 range. I have run the series I from progress for road racing use and was very happy but, they are 2-3 times as much depending on configuration.

    I use KYB's on my '91 hatchback, standard ride height with stock springs, strut tower braces front and back. Rides nice, tightened it up good, works well in conjunction with Energy Suspension Polyurethane Bushings throughout everthing, to include shift linkage. The car is a daily driver.

    ^ The correct approach, define objectives and point of reference to start from. Also, budget considerations should be included.

    Bouncing boob videos are optional, the guys are all perverts, but essentially harmless and just like to have a little fun - no harm/offense intended. BTW, they also know Honda's really well. ;)

    first off, welcome to the site.. someone must love you because you are not a greenhorn anymore and only have 3 posts

    as far as suspension, you dont need full coilovers like many are mentioning.. KYB AGX w/ an H&R or Eibach spring will suit you just fine

    pics or it didnt happen... :ph34r:
