NOTE: Kit photo shown here has the INCORRECT rear dampers. The ADDITIONAL photo below shows CORRECT lower end configuration.
These new systems have been redesigned with improved shock dampening rates, modern foam-type bump stops, and less part content for a simple and durable sport suspension system. This is a perfect system for street performance, new track day and autocross enthusiasts, as well as project cars with engine swaps.
Best ride for a daily driver. Fun and well-mannered. Modest understeer. Recommended for street/performance & daily drivers.
FRONT HEAVY setups (350/250, 450/350 etc.)
Good for Daily Drivers (DD), poor weather and road conditions because these setups do not upset the ride on the highway and during cornering. The softer rear suspension tracks nicely and rides better because it is more compliant. These calibrations ride well on uneven road conditions if set up at a reasonable ride height around 1.0 in.to 1.5 in. less than OEM (12.5 in.). Expect a dramatic improvement in handling capability and steering response. These setups will still have some mild understeer, less than OEM but still easy and forgiving to drive every day and in all weather conditions. This is the choice for sport-tuned Daily Drivers.
ALWAYS CONSIDER the following:
* Primary vehicle use
* Secondary vehicle use
* Weather and road conditions
* Driver skill & experience
For the sake of comparison, typical OEM spring rates for these applications are approximately 220#/in front, and 110#/in rear. With the numerous Civic & Integra applications, there is a range of spring rates, and these CS-II systems are significant upgrades from your OEM damper and spring calibrations.
-Complete system with trimmed bump stops installed on the dampers. You will trim them for your application.
-NEW cellular foam-type bump stop kit. This is a superior OEM-like material and design. These can be trimmed to suit your application.
-INSTALLATION shown on an EF chassis. Note the new brake line bracket now included.
