ok....fine i shall school you1slo4dr said:give me a break as if yours had anything to do with the original post
do not try to act all high and mighty, first of all the h-series might only be 70lbs heavier then the b-series but last time i checked YOUR civic did not come w/ a b-series engine from the factory, so in reality you are looking more at 150-200 lbs of EXTRA weight so no ANY old spring won't do, but if you like half assing your shit and getting poor performance then by all means go ahead, i will stick with a BALANCED setup and rip you a new asshole in the corners why you are trying to figure out why you nose dive so hard everytime you hit the brakes or take a turn, so get a clue and realize that you NEED to work on suspension when you swap an h-series, i am tired of all you mother fuckers on here wanting to ghetto rig your shit and then when someone tells you what you SHOULD do you fucking dont listen1slo4dr said:the h22 is like 70 lbs heavier than the b18 .... if my little sister gets in the car and she weighs 100 lbs do i have to change my spring rates ? i guess after thanks giving dinner ill have to change my spring rates... get a clue dude ... and shocks are meant to be compressed ... agx's are aftermarket "high proformance" which means you can put them on any spring setup. and as far as watrrantys are conserned when was the last time you actually read a warranty contract ? the contracts are always limited warrantys and the company never gurantees you will get your money back or product replaced.

Cha-ching - that's what it's all about. Weight placement.temp03 said:why dont you get 2 75lb people to sit on your fenders (right and left) and try to turn/stop/etc.
Turbine said:The car will not just be for straight line. With the correct suspension setup I'm sure I can negate the extra 70 lbs. Also with other techniqes such as moving the battery to the back lighter rad, and if need be, carbon fibre fenders/hood...everything.
Once the weight issue is corrected im sure the LSD will be worth its weight in gold, not just for the straight line shootouts.
Thanks for your input on the suspension package. Seems to me that a full kit of elements tuned to work with eachother is something people 'often imitate never duplicate' with a mix and match setup.
DO you think the tein's with some of the things mentioned above will be enough to absorb the 70 lbs of the H22?
It's not really a question of 'absorbing' the 150lbs, it's a question of adjustability to minimize the H22's negative effect on your weight distribution. In that regard you can be confident that the Teins will give you equal support and ride quality across any height and damening range you try.Turbine said:
