It's no problem to do just a front FRS, leaving the rear to do at a later date. It's only a couple of hours work to strip down the rear and fit the required shims. This is less if you find you only need to change the settings on one side.

I carry the ProKits for the diesels in stock @ £174.00 inc VAT. These come with shortened bump stops. The front camber bolts are £25.00 inc VAT and shims £8.50 each. As long as you're not classed as 'highlands' postage will be just £10.00 for a 24hour service.

If you need, give me a call and i'll do my very best to help out.

A broken spring was my thought, though I couldn't get it diagnosed before going back to work. Thanks for the feedback, I probably will save a lot of faffing about and just stick with a front FRS initially, during which they can let me know the required number of rear shims to do later on.

Wasn't sure just how much work was involved to get to the rear shims and that it would be a false economy not to do them while the rear suspension was in bits. I can live with a couple of hours labour though.

I'll give you a ring when I get the car in the air and if there's a broken spring to contend with. Should be next Friday hopefully.

Many thanks,

Nemo

No problem. That sounds like the best plan of action, as it is isn't a huge amount of labour to sort the rear. Many people go for just the front FRS to begin with.

Let me know if you want to go for the ProKit and i'll get one shipped out to you

I keep these in stock @ £150.00 inc VAT and they do come with the shortened bump stops. You can cut your originals down by 50% if you prefer, but either can be done.

I also keep the ProKit in, which lowers the Type R's by 15mm, and all other petrols by around 25/30mm. This kit is a little more @ £164.00 inc VAT.

If you want to order either of these, give me a call on 01270 567177 and i can get them out today and with you for tomorrow

Cheers,

Rich

Thanks Rich. yes the ones that lower 40mm my cars an es. Will hopefully give you a call tomorrow to get some ordered

Thanks

Josh

The Eibach Pro kit lowers the FN2 by 15mm all round and the non Type R's between 20mm and 35mm (due to the difference in standard ride height).

If you want something in between that, really it's going to be coilovers to give you more adjustability.

Let me know how you get on, and if there is anything i can help with in the future.

Rich

The 15mm Pro kit will lower non Type R's by around 25-30mm and our Eibach 30mm kit will lower the non Type R's by 40-45mm.

Hope that makes sense. As far as i know there is no difference in ride height between a Type S, and for example an EX etc.

Ok, I will probably ring up to book tomorrow, undecided on which springs yet though :-/ need some help persuading me on to the lower set. Is there any ride difference or is it just the ride height...

Springs are 110% better than the stock springs. See you all next week for the spacers...

As the hubs will be coming off for the spacers, could I ask how much extra it would be to install my Accord type R callipers, discs, and braided lines? should be a straight swap and bleed them �� ...

Glad you're happy with the springs! They are a great upgrade, and your car looked great with the slightly lower ride.

As long as everything bolts straight up, and your're supplying the relevant bits (calipers, carriers, discs, pads, lines and fluid) we'd be looking at around 6 hours in total, including fitting the spacers and longer studs. That's £536.00 inc VAT for everything fitted including the cost of the spacers.

We've never fitted accord brakes to the 8th gen Civic before, so it's a bit of a new one on us as regards to whether the carriers go straight on etc but if you're sure it's all good, that would be the price.

Hope that helps, let me know if you'd like me to change your booking to include the above work for Wednesday.

Cheers,

Rich

No problem! The majority of the labour is for the brake lines, as they are a 6 piece kit which are a little more involved to fit.

Look forward to seeing you and the car next week
