I think my car is already an 1" to 1.5" lower than stock which might already be bordering on too low from what I'm reading. But a lot of that information is 10 years old now!

Ok, I'm considering not even lowering the car anymore since I don't have either of those yet. Thoughts?

Hope you don't mind me asking so much. If we ever cross paths I owe you a beer for sure.

EK with a K swap if it's a track car. EK unibody is much better designed than the EG/DC, and it handles better due to having a longer wheel base. Also less weight. American Integras are heavy.

whats so much better about the EK over the EG/DC? and once both stripped out, I don't think an integra is all that much heavier than an EK... maybe 100lb?

So I'm currently at 25.5" front and 26" rear. (Ground to fender) Looks like my tie rods are still a bit off.

I have the factory tie rod ends and no RCAs. If what I'm reading is correct stock height is 15" which puts my car at 13.5" front and 14" rear (subtracting 12" from ground to wheel center from the original numbers)

I was thinking about raising it .5" in the front to be within 1" drop from factory. Does all this math and thought check out with everyone or am I over thinking it?

Also if I measure the dimension on the coilover itself to say the .5" does that equal .5" in ride height? Or do I need to put the wheel back on and let the car settle, measure it from wheel to fender, then take it off again and readjust to get it right?

It was explained in my post =P EK has a longer wheelbase and has that quad frame rail unibody that the DC5 has.
