i run the Mugen SS setup on the rsx and love them. but im more than upset by a -15mm drop!!! mine are -40-45mm which i think is ideal for a daily driver

your post inspired me to go looking. heres what kingnotorsports says:

The average ride height reduction is 1” front and rear for an aggressive stance, lower center of gravity, and better aerodynamics. This kit comes pre-assembled which makes installation quick and easy.

oh sweet! what i did to reduce the remaining wheel gap was upgrade 1 size on tire *from 225/40/18 to 235/40* it put the speedo off 1.2mph at 60, but rides better and is 8mm wider

I would say a little over an inch

18x7.5 Enkei Rpm2's

Nitto NeoGen 235/40/18

looking nice vash

ya north, I was wondering the same thing...why the differences with spring rates from front to rear. Traditionally the front would get the higher rate in most honda vehicles, but in our car, I can see that with all that weight in the rear of the crz why they might play with the rates a bit, but it would seem a bit more balanced to me. I would think (only my humble opinion that is) that the rates would be very near the same front to rear.

Anyway...nice post, and thanks for the legwork, its nice to see that such a new car has so many options available to us already.

I agree. I wonder if any mfg's will chime in on how they chose the spring rates... we'll see.
