    Currently im ready to purchase TEIN coilovers, I know all the spec about them, but im unsure which i should choose. Its on my daily driver, but i also auto-cross very frequently. Currently its b/w TEIN type FLEX, SS, and RA. Oops almost forgot, this is for a 95 civic coupe EX.

    RA, or HA's are your best bet.

    If your looking at RA's also look at the JIC Magic FLT-2 Coilover Kit

    They are adjustable dampering and height. They are bad ass. They also come with pillow ball mounts for free.

    u said its ur daily, whats ur threashold for pain/stiffness? the RA are pretty nasty on the street, especially if the roads arent paved that well. also take into concideration that the aluminum RAs will requires rebuilds faster than the steel bodied.

    i think the SS would be fine for a daily and sometimes auto-x`d car, just change them spring rates...make u push like a mother :p

    edfc's is one of the biggest wastes of money known to man. It is designed for those that are too lazy to pull over, open trunk and hood, turn 4 knobs, get back in car. Walah, saved an extra 3-400. Basicly designed for the same people that need a remote bottle opener for a n20 system.

    I think that is one of the better things if you dont want anyone to know that you have Nitrous. So you dont have to get out and open manually and then say "lets race now"

    i have the HA kit on my 94 civic hacth and love the ride . . . but i do think it is a little to stiff for a daily driver, depending on the quality of roads in your area.
