When I get my Si Sedan, it'll be my daily driver. I'm planning on getting coilovers for street/track duties. I'm hoping HKS will release the Hipermax Series coilovers for the new chassis.

ahh, one of my friends from the GTI forum has sportline springs on his car with stock dampers but he doesnt have camber kit either
he told me that the pro kit is basically stock ride but lower and with better handling

do you guys know if changing front and rear sway bars affect the ride a lot? i know its going to be stiffer. but i just wanna make sure i can stand it on a daily basis

Upgrading the sway bars probably won't be that noticeable on a daily basis unless you take some hard corners.

I'm sure the new chassis will be fun to toss around on the track.

Coilovers are expensive, but defintely worth it IMO.

Oh no they definitely are, but as a full time college student, some things will just have to stay on the waiting list for a while lol

I wouldn't spend more than $1,000 at a time either. That's why I use my credit card. Buy now, pay later. :thumb:

Sway bars do make a difference!..In a good way..they wont affect the ride alot..thats usally the springs. It wont be a problem for a daily driver, ull just feel more comfortable entering corners and turns.

I agree, sway bars make a big difference. On my EP3, I went from the stock rear sway bar 15mm to a civic/integra type r 22mm and this gave me less of an understeer.
