    Hi, so after not having a Honda for over 4 years I've finally got myself another Civic and can't be more pleased with driving one again, I've just started modifying it and have joined the forum to ask if anyone has any experience with fox racing coilovers, I'm sure this isn't going to be the first question I ask and hope someone can shine a light on the coilovers for me, cheers, sming

    Great to see your EJ9 in the Club Garage.
    I'm sure some one will be along soon to answer your coilovers question.

    Sorry I don't know much about Fox Racing coil overs, hopefully someone else may.

    Please do document your mods in the Project Log section of your Club Garage entry, so we can follow along :Smile:

    Hi there, and welcome.

    Not sure what people with first hand experience have to say on those coilovers, they are at least dual perch design which means height adjustment does not affect spring rate.
    The listing i saw seems to require you reuse your existing upper mounts or purchase new ones (probably best to get new ones for an older vehicle)

    From a personal standpoint i went a little up market and bought some with adjustable damping which can help in tuning handling characteristics and spring rebound. The other advantage is that there are spare parts available which is helpful as suspension is after all a sort of long term service item. With the state of our roads it can be handy to be able to get spares!

    Worked out okay on cost too, put down a couple of hundred up front and paid the rest by finance interest free. Not sure if any of that is helpful, but maybe food for thought?

    Great feed back bud, I think a bit more saving and getting coilovers with a bit more reviews is going to be the way to go
