there was a posting a while ago with a guy who had tanabe super H springs and posted pics of them INSTALLED in the car..

unfortunately the pic links are down or something.

i'd appreciate if you or anyone else with these springs, could you repost those pics here?

thanks!

hmmm in addition,

anyone here seen neuspeed sofsport springs? the website says it offers the "same handling characteristics" of their sport springs but they just dont lower the car "as much".

what is "as much" ? 1"?

comments?

Well I have the Super Hs, but not on my car yet... Grrrr, I've been trying to get them installed and take pics for like the last 5 weekends... Maybe this Sunday...

ODL had pics of his up a while ago. I think I saved some of his pics on my HD at home... I'll repost them if I can find them tonite... If that's OK with you, ODL...


The Neuspeed SofSports are not available for the 97+ Prelude.

Take that, beeotch! Glad I finally know how to do those now. OK, all the Prelude pics are of mine with the Tanabe Super H. Not many on level ground (at least not moving!) but they should give you a good idea of what the car will look like in general. Keep in mind there's bigger rubber on the car, so you'll have a little more wheel gap but be a little closer to the ground (I think .25" all the way around).

The other pics are just from a Tochigi Proving Grounds brochure I was lucky enough to come across. I loved all the pics of the mowers, turns out they do EVERYTHING there, not just cars. Something funny about a guy in a lab coat riding a Honda mower.

Sorry, i had lost my server space when i cancelled my DSL account...still waiting for the new company to start us up. Feel free to post those crappy pics aklucsarits. Dailing up at home where all my pics are doesn't help either...uploading pics on a 56k sucks ass. Sorry

I just checked my home PC, and I did not save those pics of ODL's car... As I've been promising for weeks, I will post lots of pics of my car if/when I finally get my Tanabe SuperH's and Koni's on...


ODL: If you still have 'em, you can email me a few of your good pics and I can post them on my webspace...

Where did you get your Super H's? online? I can't find an online retailer...

I got mine last fall from Adam at www.aieonline.com. I got an awesome deal on them becuase Adam was doing a group buy on the Tanabe Super Down Precedo springs at the time. I think ODL got his from AIE also.

I know www.carparts.com also carries the Tanabe line. So you can use the importhookup.com coupons on them. I don't know of any other vendors... Mackin Industries (www.makinindustries.com) is the Tanabe distrubutor for the US, so you could call them up and find out what other retailers can sell you the Tanabe springs...

talk to Carboy Racing in Houston...they don't sell over the net, yet at least, but you can call them and order...i bought mine from them (locally of course) and they're pretty competitive when it comes to pricing...i just go to them usually cuz their techs are reputable unlike Endless and Hocus Pocus here

ok enough about USA shops

i just got a quote from psychotic-racing.com based in toronto canada. he said he can sell me the tanabe superh + kyb agx's for a grand total of $1064CAD shipped incl taxes.

(for u americans, thats about $687US)

is this a good deal?

I got my Tanabe SuperHs for $119 (US) shipped to me. And you can get the KYB AGXs for $350 (US) shipped in GroupBuy... So, no, that's probably not a great deal you got there...

that is insane cheap... that comes to around 760CAD$

take note that typically us poor canadians have to pay more all the time. if i order from US, i get shafted on shipping and border duty and brokerage fees so it almost ends up being the same $$.
