    Suspension advise

    I'm wondering if anyone can enlighten me on something. I bought some cheep Maxpeeding Rod coilovers for my Wagon due needing new shocks. After doing a little research I got a set meant for a EG thinking they would be the right ones but it turned out that they were too short in the rear so I maxed out their length and just dealt with them. Unsurprisingly, they have now started to leak in the rear. Thing is, I want to replace them with a more sport type shock and spring package instead of a coilover thinking this would be a cheaper option but I can't find anything cheapish and readily available. I've tried looking for MG shocks but I can't find any that guarantee me a stiffer setup and trying to find lowering springs on Fleebay is a bit muddling as they say they are meant for an Aerodeck but don't list them in their info ("These fir your car" scenario). I've also had the same with websites other than Fleebay i regards to finding definitive information. Are Aerodeck shocks different or did I read something wrong and EG coilover are shorter than other models of Civic? I use to own a MK3 Golf estate and rear shocks were completely different to their hatchback versions in length and build so is this the same-ish for Aerodecks?
  3. HONDA CIVIC 'M' SERIES COMPATIBILITY DATABASE Civic5 accepts no responsibility for any inaccuracies or omissions from this database and all that STEERING AND SUSPENSION COMPONENTS *Wheel and tyre info....Stock ET is 45 for all M's (widest recommended rim with this et is 6.5" at r15? ). DC2 alloys need spacers to fit over 282 calipers *Springs and shock absorbers....Same as dc2/eg/ek/ej/400/45/zs. DC2 coilovers will need the Integra LCA. Matched springs and shocks are specific to the weight of the model so Aerodeck are different as are other civics or Integras. *Front upper wishbone....Same as dc2/eg/400/45/zs.

    Bush Replacement

    Hi guys, so my Mb2 is going to be turning 20 very soon this year So one of the jobs I’m wanting to do is replacing all major bushings etc. I’ve just never done this before and have no idea what bushes are on the car, front suspension and back. Also where can I get all the right parts and how much is it going to cost approximately? Trailing arm bushes badly need doing, also sure I’ve heard the front anti roll bar knocking, rear LCA bushes could do with replacing as well. Any words of wisdom greatly appreciated!

    MeisterR leaking

    Hi all. Don't know if anyone here might be able to help me out. Iv got a set of the older meisterR zeta s coilovers on my vtis. They have been on about 5 years now and recently the drivers side rear has started leaking oil, about a drip a week. I contacted meisterR and they don't rebuild the older ones and said I just need to buy new set. I'd like to avoid this for as long as I can so was wondering if anyone has an old set laying around that I could get hold of. Hopefully someone will be like me and have an odd set cos ones damaged or even a whole set going cheap. Thanks

    New my mb6 vti

    Hi new to the forum, picked up this mb6 totally standard apart from coilover a month ago and since then I've added an omp wheel and quick release, new carpets, added an aem induction kit, aluminium rad and red coolant hoses, decat, custom spark plug cover,bonnet raisers and few wee tidy up bits, I've owned a few hondas before this, had am ej6 civic coupe with a b18c4 conversion and also owned an accord type r, but its quite a clean mb6 so don't want to do to much to it or anything done it can be put back, but interested in probably one of the most asked questions of making the custom projector headlights? And looking a nice set of alloys, recommendations? Thanks

    Rear LCA Questions

    Hi guys, hoping you can help me with the following. I'm in need of a trailing arm bush replacing and when inspecting everything the garage has advised that maybe the lower control arm bushes could do with replacing to improve suspension/noise & clunking. They're not desperate but it seems much easier to get a whole new set of LCA's however I can't find them ANYWHERE online. The Eg/Dc2 ones don't fit I'm led to believe. My second point though, I have an Mb2 and so no rear anti roll bar, so the holes for this are none existent on the LCA's, but I've seen posts on here saying all Mb's had the same LCA's(?). I've seen a slight indent where the hole would be on one side and that's all. If I wanted to fit an ARB, would I need new LCA's from an Mb6 or MGZS etc? Thanks!
  19. Hi, for a few days now, i am a new owner of 1999 aerodeck VTi. So far i am happy with how the car, but i am interested in doing some suspension/handling mods. I tried looking for MG ZS180 rear ARB, but they seem to be all gone, since i was not able to find any for sale. Because of this, i was wondering, if there are any other cars that has similar suspension to MC2. I know that some parts from EK/EG/DC2 could possibly fit, but wanted to know, which are the closest to decks. Also those mentioned before have many more aftermarket options, but only some ebay sellers mark their items as (fits: civic aerodeck) and even then i am not sure if these parts will fit. I saw some mentions that for example DC2 LCAs are almost identical to M series civics, and mainly was thinking, whether would also rear arb from DC2 fit with just a slight modifications. So what i am asking for is recommendation about what parts should i look for, that would require the least amount of modifications to fit my deck. I am a bit late to this game and see that there are only few members still active, but i will try to keep you posted with any progress to the car. Thanks in advance for any relevant info. Edit: i forgot to mention, that i am working with CNC mills and have also access to lathes, so i can make most needed spacers, brackets and stuff. So if i get some coilovers that have the highest point of adjustment too low for my liking, i will simply make aluminium plates, to rise it up a bit
  20. as above want to lower it either coilovers or springs? been told other civic models fit on but which ones fit straight on with no messing about? been told eg/dc2 ones fit all round is this correct before i order some? thanks
  21. Hey guys, will be selling my mb3 soon but taking the following things out and replacing with stock items. Full leather seats - quite dirty atm but will be cleaning them before selling. Rears are in great condition and the fronts have a few scuffs. I've pictured everything possible. Would need the front seats replaced when swapping! Got the stock rears but swapped the fronts with the guy I bought it off. £100 Tegiwa carbon powerchamber/whalep***s with filter. Done probably about 5k miles. A few small scratches from when trying to fit it in the bay. £115 Project A Omega Alloy Wheels 16x7J 4x100 4x108 ET35. 215/45/16 tyres all around. They looked great when fitted on my mb. Unfortunately one of the wheels took a beating when I veered into the payment to avoid a child. Front tyre got a damaged sidewall but wheel was relatively untouched considering, but rear got scratched up massively by the kerb. One wheel got dropped on it's side when off the car. Tyres are toyo proxes and have I believe around 5/6 mm left but will double check. Great tyres, but one needs replacing. These worked beautifully with the shocks and springs and there was only slight rubbing at full lock. Rears would rub if you had a full house of fatties in the rear. Otherwise, perfect! Don't think they rub with stock suspension. £200 Civic mb parcel shelf with InPhase 6x9 triaxial speakers with directional tweeters. These sound amazing! Such an improvement over the stock 4" speakers. Not exactly the tidiest job from underneath but the sound quality you got from these made a massive difference to my journeys. Will be really easy to connect to the headunit by disconnecting the original speakers. Had similar components in the front but have gone into my new car, these won't fit! Also have the box for the speakers. £80 I will also have mg zs 180 shocks to sell as well as Eibach lowering springs. Would be easier to sell together but will sell the shocks with standard springs and lowering springs separately unless the money is right. Currently don't have pictures of them unfortunately. Springs have done probably 7k miles, unsure of shocks! These are easily the best cheap upgrade to suspension for any mb civic. MG shocks are slightly lower than standard mb suspension and offer a stiffer ride. Eibach springs drop another 30mm. This made such a difference to the ride. It went from being a boat to feeling planted. £80 shocks £150 springs £220 together (stock springs included) I bought the mg shocks off someone from here though I can't seem to find the thread! Bought the Eibach springs in Nov '16 I also have civic floor mats that I re-dyed black. All in good condition with driver's side having the most wear. Sorry, no pictures of this! £20 Still also have the Energy suspension complete bushing kit that will fit a civic MB. Brand new, only opened to have a look at everything. Everything still in the box! £130 Probably the only thing I can post at a cost of £10 Currently, it's all in Witney. I live in Watford and will be going over asap to change it all over. Do not have time to post or box anything so collection only. Can organise collection from Witney or Watford or nearby to either. Work around London so may be able to sort something around there. Seats collected in Witney only due to changing over the fronts. My new car won't be able to transport a single seat, upgraded to a 350Z! Send me a message on here or text me: 07456675686
  22. Hey guys, bought this kit: http://www.tegiwaimports.com/select-car/honda/dc2/suspension/energy-suspension-hyper-flex-poly-bush-kit-integra-96-01.html awhile back with the intention of changing all the bushes but never got round to it. Upgraded to a 350z so I'm selling my kit! The dc2 kit is meant to fit civic mb's after having done the research ages ago. Looking for £130 and can post at cost. Send me a message here or text me: 07456675686
