Thanks! I couldn't pass up a deal on a DC RH recently, so that's sitting until I get all the maintenance done and can get a KPro.

Here's the big suspension install update!
  • BC Racing coilovers - Extereme Drop Kit w/ 10k front, 16k rear Swift springs
  • ES Black poly bushing kit
  • Whiteline rear upper knuckle bushings (only bushing ES kit is missing)
  • Ingalls Front and Rear Endlinks
  • Ingalls rear camber arms
  • New OEM tie rod ends and hardware
  • Todd's adjustable tie rods (STILL back ordered)
  • Hardrace extended ball joints / roll center adjusters
  • Used OEM front and rear control arms so I can have a shop press in the bushings with minimal down time

Front control arm comparison




Front suspension comparison



Ball joint comparison



Rear suspension comparison



Rear control arm comparison



Rear camber arm comparison



Work in progress shot




I thought I had some random no-name strut tower bar. I was wiping it down to post it for sale on craigslist, when I found this ... Needless to say, I'm keeping it




Now here's a comparison after the install. Coilover height is same as they were in the box. There's about 1.5-2" to go down in the front, about 0.5" to go down in the rear.

Started a new job at Netflix this week so I've been driving her daily.



Picked up a set of new OEM Honda Access window visors








Yes, lower window moldings are next on the list.

My exhaust was also hitting the sway bar, so I picked up a pair of hangers from the cat/downpipe since they're shorter. Exhaust is now WAY too close to the bumper, but at least its not hitting the sway bar. Will have to find some urethane or rubber bushings that are somewhere in between.

During my research I found that the Buddy Club do not have a provision for the retaining C-Clip and people had instances of them popping out. I didn't want to deal with that.

Interesting, is this a generational/revision issue or did they lack the provision throughout production? I have one of the first, installed by Buddy Club themselves and I've had it on the car since. It hasn't been my daily for almost 10 years now though.

I think that's how its always been (from my brief searches on here). Obviously thousands of people have run it without issue, but there were at least 2 posts on here of it popping out. I daily the car over an hour each way to work, so I didn't want to take the chance.

Picked up some ITR pedals from Checkerd Sports and sliced my hand open while shaving the gas pedal LOL.

License plate bracket was ready to fall off, so I decided to get an offset plate relocator. I also cut off the "baby teeth" that hold the plate bracket. Cleans up nicely.




Wheels are on! Running -2 front and -2.9 rear for camber. Need to play with the height a bit in the rear and try to remove a little more camber, but she's good to go.

Thanks! I was shaving down the brake pedal for the ITR cover, and you know how they say, cut away from yourself? Yeah didn't do that . Slipped and sliced my hand. Its healed now with a gnarly scar.

I just noticed you cut the license plate brackets in the bumper. I'll probably do the same tonight when I finish doing the ITR brake ducts.

Yup! Couple minutes between a dremel and metal shears took care of those nicely!

this keeps getting better and better! wheels look good, i was just looking into the 9 et25 up front. how is it at -2*?

i'm on x9/8, et35 and gf's wheel shopping for her car. if she wants my set i was looking at some hypergrams which come in x9 et40 or 25. the 35 scrubs inside close to lock which isn't an issue but don't want to make it worse.

i ran et25 before w/ a x10 but that's another stor

Finally swapped out the lower window moldings!





Picked up some Rays 35mm Duranuts in black. Sad this style has been discontinued. The new style is so ugly lol. Also threw on the Motorsports full center caps on one side.






I'm also in the process of moving all my photos to imgur, since Photobucket are a bunch of assholes and are blocking all photos hosted on other sites unless you pay $400/year. RIP to pretty much all forums

Thanks! The front is pretty much perfect. Rubs the fender liners even though they're cut. That could be resolved by raising the car, or letting it fix itself . I'll be doing the latter. I do wish the rear were higher offset so I could run the same amount of camber all around. Maybe go +25 front and +40 rear with a 5mm spacer to clear the trailing arm?

Thanks! It looks better in photos than real life maybe it'll get a respray one day.

Love the window visors. I've had them on multiple cars in the past and couldn't pass up an OEM set
