Post links to Reviews, Installs, and commonly asked questions here. Once they begin to pile up I'll organize them for easy lookup. I want the BEST...not multiple threads about the same thing! I'll sort through it....don't be afraid to post!!! :thanks::dance:

This thread is to cut down on the stickies at the top of the forum and unclutter things a bit...

Here is a pretty comprehensive list of spring rates, provide by Eran. :nice:

Here is a compiled list of spring rates for many different aftermarket (and OEM) springs for Civics and Integras. I am still working on my 88-91, 92-95, and 01+ (Non-EP3) listings, and they will be added to this in due time. Sorry, I don't yet have the spring rates for the factory EP3. If anyone has more information, or corrections, let me know so I can add them. A big thanks to JDMFreak, EXavier, and PahLok from HT. :thumbs up
