Nice evo!

I think the OEM HFP kit I linked earlier would last longer than the KYB+Eibach combo, and give you better ride quality too.

Most aftermarket struts last about 50-80k on stock springs (depending on the driving conditions, road condition, etc). They'd most likely not last as long with lowering springs.

The difference in longevity is probably something close to the price difference.

Those are hidden under the Si because most sites just hide them like that. Shouldn't be an issue

Not really, looking at the STR.T Orange $110 each front and $70 each rear ~$360. So if you want Konis, then you should get Konis
XLR8 Koni SRT.T
RedShift Shocks (Konis among others)

I saw that you are not against having everything come assembled. That does add cost. RedShift HFP Killers come assembles and your choice of springs. Not as cheap but an option and probably a better option than HFP parts.

For best cheap commuter setup, use the stock springs on the car and KYB. Best ride. Next best thing is Tein High.Tech and KYB, which lowers about the same as the HFP (about 1/2") and is not much stiffer than stock. The Konis are a little better shock, but the KYB will be just as comfy and cheaper.

Hope that helps.
Chris

Thanks for all the help. Local Honda dealer got me a full HFP kit for $625 out the door. Combine that with two ball joints and tie rod ends from MOOG for another $90 (Thank you rockauto!) .. and I'll have the whole suspension replaced funr just over $700.

Has anyone used the SR4241 and SR4242 on a 8th gen Civic Si Sedan? I emailed the company because they did not have anything listed for the quick struts in a Civic Si Sedan.They said the SR4241and 4242 are not intended for the SI Sedan and would void the warranty.

I'm more worried about my car than a warranty and I assume it would work based on the number of people here referencing it but though I would check.



Thank you,

The SR4241 and SR4242 will work fine on your Si sedan

Hello -

I'm looking to replace the stock suspension on my 2006 Si coupe. Looking at the KYBs, but their catalog does not show a "strut plus" option for the Si coupe. Can I use the SR4241/4242?

Thank you!
