    Anyone own a decent set of coilovers that they would buy again if they had the chance too? If so, what kind are they? What is your drop range? How is the ride for daily driving, close to stock? How is the ride for auto-X and drag? There are so many different set-ups to choose from, i was just curious what everyone likes.

    Tein HA's, love them. Soft for DD, hard as a rock for autoXing and HPDE's. Suck for drag.

    Honestly, does anyone have a suspension set up that is close to stock ride? Im looking to purchase the $1700 Tein Flex suspension system for my 2003 EP3 Civic SI. I want to use it primarily for AutoX but i cant bring myself to buy them because i dont want to sacrifice the stock ride tooo much. Any Helps guys?? (sorry to thread jack bro)

    Tein FLEX- I love mine. The ride isn't like stock, but once you get everything dialed in, it's a nice and firm but SMOOTH ride. It's not harsh at all with the shocks set at about half of max damping.

    Kinda cheap coilovers with stock shocks. Its flat in the corners but the ride quality will rattle the teeth out of your mouth. They suck. Do it right the first time and get good equipment.

    Tokicos, with Ground Controls. would I buy them again, hmmmm...maybe, since I got the bugs worked out, and started experimenting with the settings, they are actually a decent set up, especially for the price. That five way adjustability is actually a lot more room than I thought it was going to be.

    I have Gr-2 Shocks with Eibach sportsline springs. Great ride and really tight once i fiixed the washer problem :D . But i'll mostlikey change my shocks next year to the KYB AGX. My ride is alittle lower then when i was on coilovers but the quality is 50000000000000000000000000000000000% better

    I'm using kyb agx's and neuspeed sport springs, firm and tight, yet overall a smooth ride. I've had no problems using them for auto-x or daily driving.

    You can run EDFC on any of the adjustable teins, however, on civics its so easy to do it, its not needed. On some other cars to get at them you have to take off a shit load, so those pretty much need them.
