    Default Ground Control's with tokico adjustable's, or KYB AGX's?

    for a 1.8" - 2.5" drop?

    value? durability?
    Right now I'm leaning towards the illuminas.

    Thanks

    Also, my car requires KYB gr2's in the rear i believe.

    I was on that route before, I have talked to other g2 owners and it's either the gr2/eibach sportline combo or the famous gc/koniyellows combo

    AGX's don't have a set for the rear but I believe that you can use an 88-91 Civic one

    Never heard anything about the Illumina setup yet

    If I did get springs they'd probably be the Neuspeed Race, or something w/ similar rates and length. I just want adjustability incase I'm not happy w/ the wheel gap.

    Here's a good review:

    Illuminas are better than AGX, but not much more. I'd save the cash, and get a eibach/AGX setup

    I think the AGX are ok down to 1.5" which would be ok(if that took off enough gap), but since I need GR2's in the rear, I wouldn't be as tunable + the GR2's are called "moderate" for sportiness by their manufactures.

    But I guess a more year-round-friendly height w/ non adjutable dampeners would be better value.

    edit: I just found out that rear EF AGX's fit DA tegs. But coilovers are req to achieve a level height.

    The Eibach Sportlines are too soft though. 263F/143R
    So if it's springs I'm getting it'll probably be Neuspeed(Sport 1.8) of H&R(Sport 1.8"Front: 340lbs.Rear: 186lbs.).

    Value options:
    Non adjustable shock(Tokico Blues, Koni Reds)
    with "sport" drop. I would prefer a progressive spring.
    The softer Eibachs are 0.3" lower in the front which evens the gap.

    some prices here:

    Nope it's black (and very dirty right now) I was behind you at the lights turning from Blackfoot onto Heritage and down the hill. After the turn you just hammered it. I was still behind you when we both turned towards Costco but you kept going straight. I also saw that red teg go by while waiting at the lights.
