Is that how it works? Full coilovers would put you in a different class than shock/spring combo?

yes because you are changing the position of the perches and the hat types.

konis use the stock perch height and stock hat type. also can't change springs in stock class unless it's an update or backdate for the same year. ie. me moving to the marginally stiffer rspec springs.

Todays fun. Needed pads, and ebrake was loose. Thought I would tackle the good side first. Still have to do the other side.

Dealer booking a month out but needed an oil change. It was $2 more doing it myself and remembered why I don’t change oil. Small mess cleaned up nice but the filter was barely tight and there was some seepage underneath. Cleaned that up too. I was considering the engine was finally consuming oil when I had to add a little bit it’s certainly not burning it.

Just curious...do you have any issues getting your car jacked up? I ended up having to buy one of those low rider floor jacks. I'm for sure a little lower than you, but still, just wondering.

Nah I have the larger of the Pittsburgh jacks don’t need to do anything funny to get it in the air.

Ah, okay. I have plastic "race ramps" that I used to use on the RSX before I got a lowrider jack. They're really just to assist in getting a regular jack under it though.

I'm going to be doing a suspension overaul soon and I think I may raise it up a tiny bit to help with ground clearance. I've got Progress coilovers to replace the entry-level Teins I've been rolling on, which are surprisingly shitty given the name associated.

Other photos, snow tires so I can get a sticker. The exhaust still needs to get fixed.
