    I like the SRR rear LCAs. I don't have them, but I know a few people who do, and they love them. I really don't know how much of a difference they would make though.

    we have the full SRR alignment, LCA and Rear sway bar kit on our EK coupe.
    and the way it stiffened up the rear and took away the looseness of the car on the turns made so much difference.

    I heard the SRR LCA's are 2 lbs lighter then stock. Also, i like it because it shows off the back end of your car and suspension... :D

    personally the look of the lca's is one of the big drawbacks for me. I don't want to do anything with my car that will draw attention to it when I'm just driving around on the street. It's bad enough that I have a stupid 4" tip on my muffler (I'm thinking of having it cut off and having a piece of 2.25 welded on

    other than the weight reduction I really don't see how the srr lca's would be much better as compared to stock lca's with ES bushings

    plus the price tag isn't realy worth it in my opinion

    Edit: what's the deal with the exospeed website? it's not there....
    EDIT^2: site is working now.....

    Other than the flash and the bushings, there are mounting points for sways, but aside from that if you replaced your bushings you'd probably not be able to tell any difference between those and the stocks.

    yes, they do have mount points for sway bars but so do stock teg lca's as well as si and EX civic lca's

    so you lose a couple of unsprung pounds, gain some bling, and better bushings for the nifty price of $225 :blink:

    granted 1 lb unsprung is supposed to be equivolent to 10lbs sprung.... correct? so the 4 lbs you save with the lca's is like eating subway more often and dropping 40lbs worth of your man boobs :lol:

    negative


    that only applies to rotational mass (rims, tires, brakes, etc shit that spins)
    the unsprung weight will help with handling though im not sure what the ratio is for that though (i think its something like 1lb unsprung has the effect of 4 or 5lbs sprung on handling :unsure: )

    good to know, I must have misread that somewhere
    but that does make more sense

    and by brakes you mean rotors.... correct, because calipers are stationary so they would fall into the same category as lca's

    I'm not incredibly concerned about weight anyway because I put about 20 -30 lbs of sound deadener into my car this summer
    but I have HX rims so that should more than make up for it :)

    yup rotational mass iss just shit that spins... the 10:1 ratio is just an estimate for rims/tires... brakes would be a little lower becaust the mass is rotating closer to the axis point.... 20inch chrome dubz would be higher because the mass is further from the axis point

    any weight that is stationary (non-rotational) and is not suspended by the springs (or other form of suspension) is "unsprung" weight

    right on,
    I have a pretty strong physics background as well as statics and dynamics, but it is still tied up in retarded books and I haven't transfered it to the real world and cars as of yet

    for instance just because you can find a 17" rim that weighs 10lbs, it doesn't mean it is as good at a 15" rim that weighs the same because of the location of the bulk of the weight
