    Not sure as to what best, but I'm planning to upgrade to Tein SS Coilovers. You want something that has the strut with it, not sleeves like Skunk2 and you want to be able to adjust ride quality (damper).

    Check into Proflex they are from across the pond but come with a remote reservoir and are designed for racing. We run a set of gravel spec suspension on our 93 Si. They are awesome. You are probally looking at around $3000. If you need a reputable US distributor let me know we have a great one in Seattle.

    Gravel spec suspension, wouldn't that be too soft for the street??? :confused: And $3000 for a daily driven Civic, probably would be out of the range for most Civic Owners (the suspension costs almost much as a stock EG :eek:hsnap: but he did say money wasn't an object).

    Perhaps you would consider going Mugen Sports Damper Kit (non height adjustable) 50000-XG5-K3S0 for about $1000 or Tein Flex coilovers sytem, they will run about $1500 or so.

    These are both designed for Street use. But if you are looking for anything performance wise, usually the ride will be stiffer. And if you are bouncing then usually the car is lowered too much or this happens with many low quality springs which tend to have no R&D put into them. So whatever set up you decide go with reputable manufacturers.

    :2cents:

    Yeah $3000 might be a little steep for a daily driver but he said money was no object and Proflex does make suspension for Tarmac. It's nice and stiff and used by the Type R Civics run in europe for tarmac events. My hope is that if he does spend the money on a nice set of suspension that it isn't for a car that will never see a track.

    Mine just happens to be gravel spec because that is what most of the rallies in the states are.

    Hope all this helps.
