Ok, on the suspension..

86-89 honda accord coil springs, LXi w/ automatic transmission and air conditioning being stiffest, DX and LX being softer.

About the front.. RX struts seem to be the way to go?

RX springs and Struts?

what car is this going onto, i just did this mod, and the springs are WAY too stiff, the car only lowers about an inch and a half when the weight is on the tires. there is basically no suspension, its all bouncy and and no cornering at all, too stiff.

you can use your stock sturts, or get new ones, but it seems that the RX springs are the same height, just have better spring rate and stiffness.
