I just got some Neuspeed race springs for my 98 civic. Installed them last night and so far I love the ride.

This is my first modification to my car and I was wondering if these springs were good, and what else I will need?

I plan on buying a camber kit with my next paycheck.

A friend of mine was telling me about his civic, he said his shocks "blew out" when he put lower springs on his car, is this something I can look forward to, or what?

Thanks.

I have a friend with Neuspeed Race on his 5th gen LX. Nice 1 finger gaps!

A camber kit will be needed and that is good you are picking that up next pay period.

It's a little late to ask if they are good :p but don't worry they are :D I have the sports which are not low enough for me :(

Ground Control coming to the rescue :)

Oh, and look in to some quality shocks ASAP!! Yes, they will most likely blow!

Awesome thanks for all the help.

Got one more question though... I went to Winston Tires and they looked my car up (98 civic dx) and told me that 98 Civics need a whole new control arm or something and that it will be more expensive than just getting the camber kit... Is this true? According to them it will cost me nearly 200 dollars just to have my cars allignment fixed.

I never got any kind of control arm modification with my race springs. I have an adjustable front ball joint assembly from speciality products, and i paid around $150 for it from groupbuycenter. I have a 1998 EX and I have never heard of that.

The control arms they are talking about are the camber kit for the front. They do not come with the springs as you know.

Yes...I know. I was just saying that I did need any control arm modification after lowering my car, and properly aligining it. I know that they don't come with the springs, and I was also talking about the kit for the front.

I love my Neuspeed Race Springs. My shocks have lasted for about 5 months but they are on the way out. I have little if any wheel gap. Camber is way off though. I also think my front toe-out is off. I'm getting a feathered edge on my front tires. I have a camber kit on its way and I am going to align my car on monday at my friends shop. Its a stiff ride but I love to feel everything. Just my opinion.
