I'm running Tein S-tech and Tokico Illuminas on my 98 coupe, Handle great. I've learned they tend to feel stiffer in colder weather but since you can adjust them I just drop them down to 2.

Only complaint! My rear passenger shock started leaking oil 3 days after they were installed, within a month you could feel the difference on that one corner going through curves. I had the shock removed and sent in under warranty and it was replaced due to manufacturing defects ($10 to ship to seller & $20 to have overnighted back). That's 30 buck I'm out due to a "manufacturing defect" I've checked around on the web and asked the guys at the shop and have came across the same problem in multiple locations. One guy said Tokico stated to him he must have got a shock from a "bad bach". I remember reading something like this on carreview.com also.
Either way after the headacke I wish I would have went with Konis, this is what the shop mechanic runs on his Integra and stated he's never had a problem with them but he has heard of the Tokico's leaking and going limp.

i love it! and god yes, they are stiffer in colder weather...right now i'm in desperate need of sway bars...if a corner isnt banked, i dont feel confident when taking it at a high rate of speed
not to mention, my stock steelies and hubcaps arent helpin that much neither:td

I got the Illumina coilover setup for my teggy. I love it so far. For 700 bucks it is hard to beat.
