Question suspension help

so i got the 92 civic with the b18b1 set up. i want to upgrade my suspension but i dont know if i should get the set up for the civic or the integra, i think its the integra since the axels are from it. i got coilovers but i dont like how it rides. what should be the first thing i change?

you have a lot to learn my Boy. Your Motor has nothing to do if you want to lower your car with either Civic springs or integra springs.

your suspension is Civic and will be Civic for the rest of its life.

one last thing,
picking out a set of lowering springs or coilovers is one thing. You will also have to see what Shocks you will use for them. That's why a lot of people complain on Coilovers because they put them on with the Shocks that have been on their civic for who knows how long (that's if they don't).

Pata's right, your axles might be from an integra, but all your other suspension components are from a civic and that's what matters.

Like always, how you fix the problem depends on how much cash you got. You can upgrade you stock shocks to something aftermarket. But that depends on how much your car is lowered. Adding aftermarket shocks to a car that is slammed will blow out the shocks. This fix will probably improve the ride quality minimally, but it is the cheapest option.

You could change over to lowering springs and get aftermarket shocks. Your ride quality will be much better, but you are paying to redo everything.

Or the last option is to get a full coilover setup. Big bucks, but you get a coilover and shock which are matched.

I would invest in this ^^^^

I have both set-ups and change them every now and then.


Right now I have cheap coilovers adjusted as low as I can have them (cause my driveway don't allow me any lower lol) with old stock shocks and bounces like crazy but I like that kind of ride. But for Long Trips it sucks B@lls boucing all over the place on the highway. When I plan long trips, I put my Lowering springs on (progress springs 2-1/4" drop) with Monroe shocks. That doesn't have me dropped like the coilovers but my Ride is smooooooooooooooth.
