Title: Re: I present to you "Creampuff"
Post by: 1mellowkid on February 21, 2013, 09:07:44 pm
so i'm in the market for a set of new sleeves i need opinions. keep in mind i will be upgrading the shocks eventuall y as well.

the problem: i'm pretty low as i had to cut open my shock towers for UCA clearance and they still bottom out. the UCA is about 1/2" from the body and my ebay sleeves are crap so.

The requireme nt: they have to be pretty stiff as i don't want the UCA to bottom out as soon as i hit a bump. must be under $350. i'm not raising the more that a 1/4" more than it is.

Options so far:
Ground control sleeves w/ custom spring rates. (i know nothing about spring rates, opinions needed)
Skunk2 sleeves (front/6kg/mm) (rear/6kg/mm)
they also have a drag lauch kit which is rated at (front/10kg/mm) (rear/18kg/mm) im sure this will be wayyyy to stiff though

Notes: the roads are pretty curvy where i live and i like to have fun occaision ally.

Post by: wiggles on February 21, 2013, 09:16:56 pm
I forgot where the post is but I think in the suspensio n part of the forum there is a post that the lowest Ef sedan says what spring rates he is running  on it so the upper control arms doesn't hit his strut towers I posted in it asking about spring rates and if you are ordering coils tryin ordering them for a 96 4 door accord there are alot stiffer spring rates then a civic that's what I run on mine unless I have full coilovers

I didn't even notice that how is it being held down
Title: Re: I present to you "Creampuff"
Post by: 1mellowkid on February 22, 2013, 10:45:03 am
it keeps itself in place the radiator hose holds it up. i took the brackets off and shook it and it didnt move so i figured it doesnt need them.
been holding up since i got it  ::)

We'll just call it a floating radiator :P

Post by: DARTHoOoNADER on February 22, 2013, 11:41:00 pm

so i test fitted some 15x8 +15 Axis OG's off a friends car I was slightly dissapoin ted how they fit so i'm doing 0 offset 15x8s of some sort since fronts need about 15mm to sit flush with a few mm of poke..  ill probibaly wind up putting some 165/45 on em because I like how it looks and its a smaller overall diameter so it should drop the car another inch
on to the pics

hah ya so my buddy Austin needed me to run him around town to get some parts for his eclipse to get in on the road because he sold his truck...S o I leave the house, I'm cruisin along like normal and I happen to see one of my other friends cars that hadn't been running (ZC CRX) at advanced. So I pull in and roll down the window to say whats up and I hear a ticking sound. I'm like oh maybe its the truck on the other side (Dang fords lol). So buddy leans out his window and hes like dude that's you. I'm thinking nah can't be so i shut the car off.....a nd it stops..i'm thinking "crap" lol so I pop the hood and all seems well..the n I crank the car and there it is again loud as hell so i get out and look and the pulley for the water pump, looked like it was nervous it was wobbling so bad. but I checked and it's only like $30 so not that bad. I limped it home doing like 2500 rpm shift and i was like please make it, please make it. But ya i made it home with nothing coming off so that's good.

so moral of the novel...i need a water pump should've replaced it with the timing belt..

lolz. did u have to do much cutting and splicing?

None at all. just had to de loom everythin g, unhook the wires, shove them inside, and reconnect everythin g.
 only thing wiring wise is you need a longer wire from the battery to the fusebox..

UPDATE: picked up a cluster with a tach.
