    I'd go with a more reputable company such as Ground Control (if your looking for just the sleeve), or Tein.

    My friends got Ground Control on his 96 Integra, loves them he can slam his car pretty low.... I also heard Tein was very good..

    weapon r coils are crap. i had a friend that put them on his prelude with kyb struts. ride was harsh and didn't handle much better than stock.

    There are so many different kinds to choose from!

    GC's are good. Tien is good but need another loan to get em.

    What do you think of this:

    Sprint Springs with Suspension Techniques struts for $400? Are sprint springs good?

    For lowering springs, i've been looking at Neuspeed and Eibach. Any other ones that anyone can think of?

    Eibach would be a good choice, it depends how low you go, the lower, the more bouncier, you really need a good set of performance shock/struts to go with your springs..........

    With good struts (KYB ADJ. most likely), will the ride be very nice or still rough?

    I don't know for certain but it would definitely help.....just remember, if you spend more and get Koni Yellows, fully adjustable, you can adjust the firmness to suit your ride!

    So in the end, comes down to how much $$$

    What is your budget?

    If your looking for coilovers i recommend Ground Controls, the springs they come with are Eibach. I would suggest that you get the coilovers if you plan on adjusting your ride hieght throughout the year.

    If you leave the coilovers set at the same hieght they may sieze over time. I bought a anti-seize spray for mine, which helps.

    As for Koni's and KYB, all depends on what your using them for. If you plan on doing some auto-x then i would recommend the Koni's, you are able to adjust the settings to figure out the best stiffness. As for KYB, they are good shocks, but remember the rule, you get what you pay for.

    KYB AGX struts are also adjustable!

    Okay, another question:

    I've noticed tons of different kinds of struts to buy. The ones i'm looking at now are Tokico, KYB, and Koni. The tokico aren't adjustable. There are brands of KYB that aren't adjustable either. Would these still work?

    Remember, KYB's are used as stock shocks on cars in Japan. I've fuond some KYB Kayaba's for cheap - would these work well?

    hahaha, the vote is now 9-0.
    I think the answer is pretty obvious.
