    I upgraded bushes and engine mounts on my old MX6 to Polyurethane ones and uprated the rear ARB to one 40% thicker... definitely noticed a difference in the handling and the engine seemed to give a more fluid response when changing gears and accelerating hard.

    I've only fitted the rears so far.the shocks are 2" longer than the tein.the ride high seems just as low.but the springs have a lot more give.i put this down to them being progressive.the tein springs are very very short compared to the eibach.even on full soft the ride is very smooth.no sign of body roll.we have lines painted on the road when entering a village.before the rear wound slighly bounce,now you don't even feel them,be interesting to see what they are like on hard.was going to fit the fronts today,but its raining

    Progressive springs are always better for comfort, whilst being able to give a firmer ride and are normally lower... I rate Eibachs quite highly myself as I've used them before.

    so i got the front koni's on.they are great.beat the tein superstreets,they seem stiffer even on full soft.yet they asorb the bumps better and have more suspension travel.still no body roll.this is the best suspension set up I've ever had.i highly recommand with the tl bushes..i have the honda part number if anyone is interested and interestingly they are £15 each.not sure how as when i go to a car with these fitted the price jumps to £55
