I was just wondering how good the quality and ride comfort the Eibach Pro-kits are. I was thinking about getting some GC coil-overs, but a lot of people are saying that the ride will be stiff and getting some springs would be better. I'm deciding if the Eibach Pro-kits are the one's I should get. I gotta 1998 Prelude SH with a Wings West RS kit so I want the drop to look good with the kit. Not so low that I'll scrape all the time but I still want it low enough to look nice. Do you guys think I should get the Pro-kits? And will they work with my stock shocks? I'm planning to get some shocks later but for now I just want to get the springs. Also when I have money to get the shocks, which one's do you guys recommend? I'd appreciate anyone's help on this.

I've got Eibach pro-kit with WW RS kit too. Very clean look to the car. I've been using the stock shocks for about 9 months, and they're gonna need to be replaced very, very soon. Overall the ride is still smooth, and I only scrape on really steep driveways, etc.

I'd suggest Tanabe Super H- a little less drop, but stiffer springs. Actually feels smoother than the Eibachs and handle better. Not good if you really want to drop the car and tuck the wheels, but then Neuspeed Race are better for that.

DO get new struts like Tokico "blues" or something adjustable. You'll need a stiffer damper to go along with the new spring, whatever it is.

I have a pro-kit on mine. I only scrape on really steep driveways. After dropping your car, you get a sense of what your car can go over and what it can't. I highly suggest you get the pro-kit but also along with some new shocks. The difference between stock and aftermarket shocks is amazing. I highly DO NOT recommend the Tanabe Super H springs. Although I'm sure they are great springs, the car will not looked dropped at all.

I have Pro-Kits on mine, and it rides better than a lot of my mates cars with standard suspension.
Yes, you get a bit of roll on hard cornering, but for a car built for the street use it is a superb set up.
Ideally I guess a Pro-kit/Koni Yellows set up would be the best because of the lower mounts, and shall go that route as soon as I can get my hands on some!

I have the pro-kits also. It is perfect for a street setup. You will corner as well as the other guys with race springs on the street. Plus, you get to keep your teeth

guiddy has the OEM kit... the reason it looks different is because of the front lip which is differnt than the ones you get in the states

Yep, that's the one! I believe there is a copy of the Euro front lip available in the States.
