what should i add to mysuspension...
i've already ordered hotchkis swaybays, f/strut bar and rear camber kit, hypermotive 3pt rear strut bar and energy suspension bushings.

i'm debating on the cusco front lower arm bar or the tanabe sustec front/rear bars.

i'm also torn between coilovers: hotchkis, tein ss, jic-magic flta2 and b&g s3.

i'm not into auto x-ing or even street racing yet but maybe down the road. the review thread that's pinned is all about struts and springs...

no body kit or rims yet. i'm concentrating on the suspension now.

for the body i was thinking r2 front, kaminari sides and molly rear and molly wing.

i wanted to stay with lightweight 17" (debating on brembo or rotora brake kits) but 225 tires and maybe flared fenders.

Hotchkis full coilovers or TEIN SS will treat you well.

i'm a bigger fan of unorthodox pulleyes. however..i think AEM has the better reputation (if only because of the nrha & their new civic). you really can't go wrong but unorthodox seems set that they produce more power with both of their pulley sets
