    I recently installed Koni STR.T shocks, H&R lowering springs, and K-Tuned adjustable rear camber arms on my '08 Si, and it lowered my car by about 1.25 inches all around. Now it feels a lot more stable when cornering, but I noticed that the car doesn't turn in quite as quickly as it used to...

    I often do some stupid stuff with the civic. We won't get into all of it, but I don't have access to a truck all the time. I own a pop camper and the civic has a hitch and wiring. I don't like how much the rear sags. What can I do to keep it more level when pulling? 2009 Civic LX auto sedan...

    Hey y'all! I recently upgraded my Si sedan's suspension by installing some Koni STR.T shocks and struts and H&R lowering springs, and I noticed that the lower stance created about -5 degrees of camber in the rear wheels even with an alignment. I want to dial out this camber to maximize my...

    I had a strut mount fail, so I replaced it. Now I have a metallic rattle from the top of that strut over rough pavement. Everything seems to be right- torqued correctly, strut mount installed with arrow in the right direction, spring seated well. Now, the reason the strut mount failed...

    I have an 08 civic with 180,000 miles. I replaced the old suspension with KYB excel G’s, also new OEM springs for the front and back of the car. New 16 inch rims and same size Hankok tires. Car is stock height. When I’m by myself, I’ll hear tire rub sometimes on turns. When my car is full with...

    Lads, I require opinions on the following issue I am having with my car. For reference I'm in Malaysia but my 8th Gen FD2 shares the same platform as your 4-door Si with the exception of mine being an AT with an under tuned K20 engine. About a week ago I decided to spruce up my ride, its around...

    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...

    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...

    Hi, has anyone else installed the 22mm progress sway bar on their si? 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:
  16. 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...
