I've got the cup suspension on my car. IMHO, it's too low. Billys + race springs is far more driveable.

I'm pretty sure I have a photo of the car on bottlecaps and snows at home. I'll post it when I get home.

I was running Billy sports with FK 60/40 kit and I'd say it had just the right amount of rake/low. But I like it low.... I also am willing to sell this set up, if there are interested parties.....

Meh, Ottawa's got super shitty roads and my M50 oil pan sits a lot lower then the M20.

The ride on the H&R/Bil combo is fantastic as well.

Im interested in seeing the dc coil setups as well. I wont settle for anything less than an adjustable coilover :\ but dont want the stupid gc prices at $1600 lol.. Around $800-1100 is my limit.

Oops sorry rambled on. & Maxbell, agreed on shitty Ottawa roads lol. Having 2 inches of clearance isnt bad all the time though (on the civic with coils). The 174 is stupid with the speed bump randomly there...

Agreed. You can't get cheap coils like you can for a Civic. 500-1000 is springs and shocks, while coils really start at 1000 and go up from there.
