Glenda’s Honda Integra DC2 – Part 18
Ever since I bought the DC2 I’ve been pretty happy with the suspension set up, as it came already fitted with Tanabe coilovers when it was imported. The only slight issue I’ve had is the ride height – yep they just don’t go low enough. So I decided it was time for a change.
Now if you’ve been following my projects over recent months you would’ve seen the PB 6-pot brakes I’ve fitted. Well, I was so impressed with the price and quality of the brakes, I decided I’d give their coilovers a try too. I’m glad I did too; they are a fantastic bit of kit.
As you’d expect they are fully height adjustable and they go pretty low, in fact, I’ve still got plenty to play with. Also there’s 30 stage adjustable damping, high grade SAE-9254 cold-wound steel springs and they even come with a one year guarantee.
And get this, if needed PB can even tailor a kit especially for your application. Everything from custom spring rates to super-low ride height. You can even choose between black and white springs and front camber plates.
Installing was dead easy, as they came with top mounts already fitted so no spring compressors and no hassle. Plus there were no seized bolts or nuts, thanks to my obsession with copper greasing everything in sight.
Whilst I had the suspension off I also finally fitted my Eibach lower control arms too. The rear view of the Teg has never looked so good.
I’m so impressed with these latest upgrades. The DC2 now sits lower, looks better and handles better too. Next on my job list is to get the wheel alignment sorted, as it definitely feels a bit out again. Bugger…
