My beater is a 1990 Honda Accord LX with 565,000 miles on it I drive five to six days a week (affectionately known as 'Dirt'), so I'm hoping these don't wear out über-fast; but I'm psyched to get back on a track... I'll just need new tires and I'm in-there-like-swimwear!

I didn't really need to take the worn out OEM dampers off; but I'm sick of the loose and bouncy feeling (... and not being able to compete with the SVT Focus' at the autocrosses).
I should have some strong opinions for both street AND track driving once they're installed!

Damn... it only took about ten days! I've been freaking out, 'cause the general opinion among autocrossers was that this setup was only good for gettin' low... but now seeing it up close: I'm just gonna do it!

I thought about selling it and looking for konis, KYBs, or QA1s... They kinda even match my car!

Now I just have to find a garage and a helper; more to come...



OOOOOOHH!

Look real nice. Don't forget pics of install. And then of course go out and thrash them to see how they handle and what the ride quality is like :)
