    Hi guys, Recently installed new Tein Flex-Z's on my FG2. These replaced my Koni STR.T's/Eibach Springs that I felt road to harsh/too bouncy. I also went through tophats every week.. Anyway, I install the new Flex-z's pretty easily as they're already assembled. I didn't cut the bumpstocks or...

  3. Suspension and Brakes
    Hello. So I recently installed a manual air ride kit in my FG. I mounted the switch panel in the center console bucket. I’ve been curious for the past few days if the air that comes out if the switches when I air out is dangerous to my health. I’m not super educated on compressed air dangers...

If you used the end link reinforcement bracket (pictured below), did you actually drill a hole through the subframe for the second mounting bolt or did you just only put the first bolt in? I was going to try to drill for the...

    Hi, i just installed my progress 22mm sway bar and unfortunately one of the end links got damaged upon removal. Since I plan on lowering the car 1-2.5 inches, I'm wondering if its necessary to buy adjustable links instead of fixed ones so I can adjust them so there isn't any preload from the...

    Hello! To anyone running air suspension, how would I go about mounting a baseboard to the trunk floor? The kit is similar to this one:
  7. DIY Honda Civic Suspension
    Hello fellows, I’ve been wondering ever since I bought my car, if there was an aftermarket suspension system that enhanced response, turn in, stiffness, etc. without lowering the ride height? Maybe the smallest amount lower would be acceptable, but I’m not a fan of the slammed look on a lot...

    Hi, I have a Civic 2006 LX sedan. I always had a sway problem with the front of the car, especially in winter, I live in Quebec. The problem is worst if there is weigh in the trunk or people in the back seat, but even when I'm alone in the car, the front sway side to side. In heavy snow it's...

    I have a 2007 Honda Civic LX, and i’m looking to lower the car but yet not dramatically change the comfort. I can’t afford those $900 coilovers. So i’m looking for the best lowering springs either brand or specific kit.

    Hello. my rear Skunk2 Pro SIIrear coilovers stop threading at a certain point, despite there being about an inch and a half of threads left. Could there be a bad thread in this area? I measured the base and the shock and from what I saw, the shock can definitely be lowered to where the black...

    I drive a 2007 Honda Civic Coupe EX. I recently bought it from a used car dealership. Every time I drive the car for the first time of the day, the suspension starts squealing/ subtle shaking when letting go of the brake to either reverse or drive out of a parking spot. I just got my two front...

    Hi everyone, I am new to this forum as I got my 2008 Civic Si about 4 months ago. So, my driver side front suspension is making a noise(started a week ago) whenever it's going over bumps/uneven roads. Went to a shop to check it out and I was told the driver side strut is on its way out. It's...

    Having that perfect ride is a topic that has been discussed for ages. Initially we thought the masses wanted an aggressive "race" feel from their cars, come to find out that isn't what everybody wanted. Well, you asked for it, and we listened.
