If it were me, and I could build another one....


Miracle X bar.

If you have the money, Carbing front tower bar.

Any rear LCA's will do, they all pretty much are the same thing besides the quality of the bushing. Some of the cheaper ones bushings may be shot within a pretty short amount of time (1-2 years). Function & Form is good. I never had problems with BLOX LCA's either, but some have.

Full coilover/good spring/shock combo or nothing is my opinion. Riding dumped on stock shocks stupid, bumpy, and annoying. They'll be blown out shortly. I had Tein Super Streets on my EK and they were pretty decent. Everyone who rode in it said they felt good and weren't bouncy at all. I'd also check out KSPORT, Tanabe Sustec, or the proven ground control/Koni Yellow combo.


You don't have much to choose from on the tie bar/subframe brace section. Benen or Beaks lower tie bar, and ASR subframe brace. And a CTR 22mm sway bar out back. You'll be pretty solid:teeth:

yea im riding on tien s techs right now and i HATE the bouncyness.

the carbing front tower bar looks a lot like the passwordJDM ones and theres a 100$ difference?

i was actually looking to go with dampers for less bounce.. those of you with the ground control/koni yellows, is that a lot smoother than springs?

i had s-techs and upgraded to the Type Flex in my old coupe. Now I'm rockin KYB AGX with H & R race springs.

Gabe took me for a ride in his car a few times and the Koni/GC is pretty impressive.
