I run H&R's with the stock struts and IMO they perform exactly like they said they would a mild drop and just tightening things up a bit. The ride is pretty much the same as stock...again just a little tighter.

Swift or H&R. H&R is quality stuff.

that and wider tires.

coilovers are best, but if you have to get springs, those two will make you happy.

extreme drop is what you want, you need to get a lot of parts to make it perform.

look i got skunk2's, backs in the front and fronts in the back, and IMO i think it rides better then stock. I recently installed them the right way on my buddy's s2000, and the boat effect isnt too bad, but its obvious the back sits lower. I would recomend them to anybody, and best of all they look great, I got about a finger gap in the back & two in the front.

in fact, any kinds of springs will look similar. they're all 1.25-1.75" lower than stock when settled down. Springs will do lil on performance though, maybe a stiffer ride and less bodyroll,thats wht we all want for DD but not on the track. Never get the springs that will slam ur car for more than 1.75". this will not give u any performance wise and even will blow ur stock shocks easily if u always drive on rough roads.(2 of my frds did blow their shocks but its not the S2000. our stock shocks are very strong out of the factory. It will still blow out if ur always abuse it) jus want ppl to keep this in mind go get the more popular brands like esplier,ebach,tein,H&R. others i wont consider though.
