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.
D-SERIES/Single cam applications
Good compromise, less understeer & more fun. A modest concession to ride quality. This may be choppy for some drivers with short wheelbase models; Civic Hatch and CRX.
SQUARE setups (350/350, 450/450 etc.)
These setups are a compromise between ride quality and all-out handling. Some impact on ride quality makes for less understeer and faster vehicle response. The stiffer front springs also help prevent bottoming out. This combination is plenty stiff, and NOT recommended for true daily drivers (TDD?) on poor roads, or drivers rolling a lot of commuter miles. Good for 'fun cars' driven by more experienced 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.
