I am thinking of buying a H&R system and just wanted to hear from someone who has them. I need new shocks and struts and I want to lower my car. I figured I might as well get the whole setup. Any input would be great. Thanks!

Why do you want H&R huh? Skunk2 not good enough for you. You need to get Tokico coilovers I think they are pretty cheap, have not spent much time looking for you just been looking for Spoon, Mugen, and Skunk2 stuff I want......................... Hey I just went to Ground Control Website and they even think Tokico Shock/struts are the best for cornering. Here is the link BA: http://www.ground-control.com/ Check it out I would never lie to you. :D Oh if you want to check out Tokico's site here it is: http://www.tokicogasshocks.com/

Ground Control it nice but much, much more money. I have Skunk2 and I love them great ride. I was amazed that it did not get really bouncy. Basicly why not ground control, price. Being Whoaduck's friend I know he needs every penny, and why not have that extra money that you would spend on ground control coilovers to put something else on the car. Plus we are both Check collectors.

I was thinking maybe it was a $$ issue (no offense). I was hoping that was it too :p I'm set on getting GC's unless I start hearing horror stories about them :sleep:

Money ain't a thang here...



















....yeah right :(

Well the H&R setup is a true coilover, while the Ground Control is a sleeve which is one reason the poster is probably interested in the H&R kit. I am also considering purchasing them and would also like to hear from anybody who has them on their car.

Thanks,

I'm lost! The guy said the GC's are too much, but the H&R's are full coilovers which are probably double the GC's :confused:

The original poster (whoaduck) hasn't posted again on this thread. SuperBlueSi started talking about Skunk2 and also said Ground Control were too expensive.

I think the thread lost direction, as an earlier post indicated... clearly true H&R coilovers shouldn't be compared with Skunk2 sleeves.

Hopefully somebody with the H&R coilover kit will post on this thread.

Whoaduck is my friend we are trying to figure out what to do with lowering his car. He tells me that his struts/shocks are toast. If nothing makes sense to you it is because I am trying to get him to get the same setup that I have, that runs pretty decent. He has little money, yes H&R are nice, yes Ground Control is nice too. He needs to stay cheap even though he don't want too.

Thats good I like that, and your right I should not push him to get it.
i was kidding earlier when i said that, hence the smilies...skunk2's arent bad coilover sleeves.....but if your friend wants to get something better.....you are certainly entitled to try and persuade him to get something cheaper but if he insists he wants something a bit better or higher on the scale, by all means let the man get a good setup without hassling him! :D

That's right. I would not buy skunk2's whatsoever. Compare the spring rates. They ride very stiff which isn't practical for most daily drivers. Unless he is a hard core racer I don't think he is going to need the H&R's either.

My car is a daily driver and I have tthe H&R coilovers...the ride is better than the Ground controls and I paid less than I would have for GCs + Koni's. Not to mention, they are rebuildable and spring/strut were designed with eachother. They also carry a full warranty regardless of how low you go.

That's great. I am just saying most likely he won't need something so extravigant unless you are hard core. You could save the extra couple hundred bucks and upgrade something else.

H&Rs are very good...a good company and high quality parts. However, correct me if I'm wrong madtownhonda 'cause it's been a while since I've looked at the specs, but they do not have adjustable shocks...that's the only thing that I would change about them (but I race, so I want adjustability).
For a daily driver, adjustability isn't really needed IMHO, mostly the adjustment is made once and then never again...might as well let some engineer do that for you...if you are going to race then adjustability is a nice little feature to have.
If you want a good setup, but don't have the cash for the H&Rs I suggest getting a good spring/shock combo...like Prokits or H&R Sports and Bilstein Heavy Duty shocks...
