Most of these little lithium jump packs are only good for starting your car if the car needs a little boost. If your battery is really drained, good luck trying to start reliably especially when it's...

I've bought many of those Denso aftermarket radiator and while I have no doubt they'll last long, they aren't quite nice like the OEM Denso. You could tell the original unit was very very well built.

If anything, a defective brake booster would give him a firmer pedal feel.

Definitely check the sliding pins. Even on stock rotors and pads (assuming they're not toast), the pedal should feel...

Unfortunately that wasn't the case for my HKS coils. The support at the time from HKS was poor and it didn't help that my coils were not popular at all. It's like trying to find info on a vintage...

If you use a large tape measure, I can see it being troublesome. I have a tiny 6" machinist ruler that works great for tight spots. No need to squint either! Different stroke for different folks I...

I think you're under the assumption that I'm measuring the spring length, I'm not. I'm measuring the distance between the upper perch and the locking ring beneath it so it wouldn't matter what the...

Correct, which is what I did before putting the coils onto the car.



I guess I don’t see the issue with measuring. If I move my upper spring perch until it moves 15mm from where it started, how...

I set mine on the car, but I install my coils with zero preload (note the position of the spring perch). Then I turn the perch until it rises whatever distance I need my preload to be.

$550 is a good deal for a used 5th gen if it doesn't require a rebuild.

They must have been sitting there for yearssssss. Did he buy new? Maybe he bought them used but put on zero miles himself.

I guess it depends what kind of top you want, OEM or aftermarket.

I found the problem!

I don't know who recommended that cleaner but it doesn't do much against brake dust (dirt maybe). As mentioned, you need something like CarPro IronX (recommend lemon scent,...

Ariel Atom 4.

Just kidding. The Civic Si seems be what you're looking for so I'd definitely go with that.

I'd like to know why they choose the spring rates they did and if the dampers changed at all (unlikely). I replaced my rear springs with 7kg and left the front alone at 10kg. It rides nicer for me...

The 125K miles car seems to be the better of the two for the most part minus the "rebuilt head as preventative valve seat loss". Is it a fancy way of saying "this an AP1 that has its retainers...

They're single height adjustment coilovers. You can't set preload independently from ride height.

Isn't a brand new set of PSS9 $1400? I would rather go with all brand new parts unless you're looking to have your current set valved differently and don't mind the turnaround time.

I started out with stock Ohlin springs and the ride was still stiffer than OEM. Comfort is subjective but go over some uneven bumps and you could tell they're sprung stiffer than OEM. On smoother...

Stick with OEM suspension if the roads are crap and you don't mind the ride height. Replace the shocks and possibly the control arm bushings if they're worn out. OEM is your best bet for road comfort.
